Use of the SGIMM

SURF developed the SGIMM in collaboration with the Dutch higher education sector after a demand had emerged for more insight in the way IT can contribute to the environmental sustainability of institutions. Organisations can use the model to generate a quick scan of the maturity of Green IT, discuss the status quo and to identify areas of improvement.

SGIMM documents

The SGIMM Toolkit consists of two documents:

Suitable for any organisation

Even though the SGIMM was developed for schools, universities and research institutions, it can be used by other organisations. The model is designed in such a way that the first 3 domains can be applied in any organisation. In addition, organisations must develop a sector specific domain themselves in order to include the primary processes. If you have developed such a domain yourself, we invite you to share it with us. We will add it to the model for other organisations to use.
