Green IT is a very topical subject right now. It seems that there are a range of views about what constitutes ‘Green IT’. On the one hand, there is the argument that Green IT is primarily a bottom-line focused activity that also helps save the planet. On the other hand, there is the view that almost every new initiative nowadays has been ‘greenwashed’ and that not nearly enough is being done to actually save the planet.

What is ‘Green IT’? Why is this topic receiving such coverage and what are the drivers behind adopting a Green IT strategy? Why should ‘Green IT’ be of interest to a company and what, if any, are the actual business benefits?

The potential risks of not taking on board the Green IT agenda are:

  • Costs of managing IT department given rising energy costs
  • Risks of regulatory or legislative non compliance
  • Corporate social responsibility and company reputation

These are some of the questions we have answered within this new Best Practice Report.

This report aims to describe the facts behind the greenwashing and to provide:

  • A clear description of both sides of the Green IT agenda including a summary of international activity;
  • A summary of the emerging global legal/regulatory initiatives;
  • A discussion of the corporate social responsibility issues;
  • A workable description of the core ‘Green IT’ definitions and what they mean within a business environment (complete with a glossary of Green IT terms);
  • Real guidance on reducing costs and improving energy efficiency in the data centre;
  • Best-practice for using IT to make business savings in other areas;
  • A description of best practice in implementing a green IT agenda.
