Green IT and Sustainability

Enabling a greener and more efficient organisation

When the UK government announced that it is to make the energy consumption of its computer systems carbon neutral within four years, and carbon neutral throughout its entire lifetime by 2012, it became the first government in the world to tackle the carbon footprint of its own computer systems. As a result, public sector organisations are under pressure to demonstrate they run 'green' IT installations as well as to use IT to embed and report on green initiatives across the organisation and the wider community.
