3 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Purpose: Aims to give directions on the many current green building programs and standards that can be used to enhance the environmental performance of a companys infrastructure. Present information on the standards and how they can be applied at various life stages of a building, including design, construction, use and demolition. Present examples of the use of environmental sustainability standards and principles in projects and the benefits obtained. 3

4 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World The Document: Design and build specifications Building maintenance, repair and operations Building improvement Technical buildings and outside plant Life cycle Case Studies throughout Check list Conclusions - Suggestions 4

5 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Design and build specifications: Provides an overview of Global Standards LEED Green Globes Green Building (Europe) BREEAM International Green Construction Code German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) Green Building Council of Australia Estidama United Arab Emirates CASBEE – Japan Case studies Waterfront Toronto Minimum Green Building Requirements Toronto, Canada UNEP Building Nairobi, Kenya Suzlon One Earth Pune, India 5

6 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Building maintenance, repair and operations Provides an overview of Global Standards LEED guidelines for existing buildings: operations and maintenance 6 Best Environmental Practice Using a systematic process, a thorough understanding of the operation of the buildings major energy-using systems should be undertaken with the goal of the development of a plan to optimize energy performance and efficiency.

8 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Technical buildings and outside plant Provides an overview of Global Standards Important to the ICT Industry BREEAM New Construction: data centers Case Study British Geological Survey data center, Nottingham, UK 8 Economic Benefit Data centers are used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. These buildings tend to be heavy consumers of energy and, as they have grown in number, the application of sustainable building standards can have a measureable impact on energy use.

9 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Life Cycle A life cycle assessment (LCA) can help avoid a narrow outlook on environmental, social and economic concerns by assessing a full range of impacts associated with all the stages of a process from cradle-to-grave (i.e. from extraction of raw materials through material processing, manufacturing, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling). Impacts taken into account include (among others) embodied energy, global warming potential, resource use, air pollution, water pollution, and waste. 9 Economic Benefit In terms of the physical environment, it is estimated that good design can reduce energy costs by 25%, and by reducing energy bills, the overall costs will also be lower.

11 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Conclusions - Suggestions 1. Standards Green building standards available for almost every type of building on a global basis and these standards are well developed and continuously being updated. Buildings that have been designed with sustainability in mind also need to be operated and maintained using sustainability standards. 2. Environmental, socio-economic aspects: Buildings built and operated according to green building standards maximize the economic and environmental benefit to owners and tenants. ICTs are critical to the energy efficient operation of our built environment. 11

12 July 2011 Committed to Connecting the World Suggestions to ITU-T Study Group 5: 3. Review and development of standards With respect to ICT usage in buildings to monitor and manage building systems, there is an opportunity to review the landscape and ensure that standards are in place and being used to ensure that equipment and systems from all manufacturers are compatible with each other. Any lack of compatibility may constrain building owners and operators from improving their systems when potential replacement equipment purchases lack compatibility with current systems due to proprietary standards. 12
