Every organisation now faces the challenge of providing cost effective quality services, against a background of economic downturn, volatile energy costs and an obligation to the environment to reduce its carbon footprint. Because of this, organisations are increasingly looking towards their ICT group to lead the way and to assist them in their need to becoming greener.
There is a common consensus across all industry sectors that organisations have a responsibility to cut their carbon dioxide emissions if the effects of climate change are to be addressed. The IT community is in a prime position to lead their organisation in achieving this requirement. Whether it is by implementing simple efficiencies such as encouraging companies to utilise their IT assets for longer or more complex remedies such as server virtualisation, IT can lead the way in helping deliver an organisation's green credentials.
