From environmental sciences it is known that the carrying capacity of the environment is under pressure by three types of human interventions, i.e. (1) pollution, (2) depletion and overexploitation, and (3) degradation. Both, negative and positive, impacts associated with IT are substantial. The Belgian technological industry is an IT intensive sector and thus an involved party. The goal of this research is to design a framework by means of which the level of green IT of the mentioned sector can be measured. This action is necessary because of increasing pressure of all kinds of stakeholders who urge to use green technology. Green IT refers to ways to reduce the negative impact of hardware on the environment, as well as to software applications that are enabling development of green technology.
