‘Green’ has become an important business issue. If consumers want to buy from Green organizations, then organizations have to consider their positions, their marketing strategies, their product ranges and their overall operational approach. While there is also a fast-growing market for suppliers of Green products and services, there is a much larger group of organizations that does not yet know how it should respond to the ‘Green business’ challenge, not least because the business benefits of pursuing a Green strategy are not necessarily that well articulated.

All of these 3 pocket guides were written by Alan Calder who is a leading author on information security and IT governance issues. He is Chief Executive of IT Governance Limited, the one-stop-shop for books, tools, training and consultancy on Governance, Risk Management and Compliance. He is also Chairman of the Board of Directors of CEME, a public-private sector skills partnership, and a non-executive director of The Outsourced Training Company, both of which are ISO14001-certified organisations.

This complete set includes:

The Green Agenda: A Business Guide (Softcover) - This business guide to Green IT was written to introduce, to a business audience, the opposing groups and the key climate change concepts, to provide an overview of a Green IT strategy and to set out a straightforward, bottom line-orientated Green IT action plan.

The Green Office: A Business Guide (Softcover) - This guide was written specifically to help cost-conscious, environmentally-minded organisations identify practical and straightforward ways of reducing both the corporate cost base and their carbon footprint.

Compliance for Green IT: Pocket Guide (Softcover) - Regulations that are relevant to the IT sector include carbon trading and carbon cap-and-trade schemes, which are used in a voluntary or mandatory capacity to reduce CO2 emissions and offset the impact of the environmental damage caused elsewhere. IT is a significant consumer of power and these schemes, while still very much in their infancy, are of growing importance and relevance for the IT organisation. This pocket guide provides a useful introduction to, and overview of, these schemes.

"The new book series by Alan Calder on green IT and green offices is an outstanding asset for anyone looking to improve the environmental performance of their workplace. Is it equally as informative for office managers looking to set office policies as for the employee interested in their own actions. Calder does an excellent job of making this expansive topic accessible to the interested but non-expert reader. I would highly recommend this book series to both those who are making green IT a centerpiece of their duties, as well as those who are interested in the topic at a more casual level. While the format of the books makes them a handy reference for daily use, the writing is such that they can be taken in also as a textbook to quickly bring the reader up to date on the latest best practices." Jon Dettling, Ecointesys - Life Cycle Systems.
