Since Green ICT is a relative young research field, this result is not that surprising. However, there is a clear increase of publications from 2009, which is not that surprising either, especially if we consider the increasing attention to sustainability and energy efficiency in global concerns and international agendas, and the recognition of the potential transformational power of ICT in achieving sustainability objectives.

The broad definition of the effects as described by Hilty (2008) allows the categorization of a wide range of ICT effects on the environment. Unfortunately, effects resulting from people awareness strategies do not fall under any of the specific categories of effects in the framework. Of course, this requires a revision of Hilty’s framework. In particular, we suggest to expand the framework by including People Awareness effects as new category. This causes the inclusion of a new sub-class of effects that falls under the second order of effects, constituting an additional class of positive impacts of ICT on the environment.
