With the current economic climate driving IT budget constraints alongside spiralling energy prices, IT leaders are looking to balance environmental obligations with the pressures of running an efficient, cost effective and dynamic IT organisation.
Enterprises in the UK and beyond are increasingly recognising that “Green IT” is no longer an expensive add-on that’s peripheral to key priorities. On the contrary: developing a Green IT strategy has the potential to unlock huge energy savings and drive operational efficiencies, as well as making a major contribution to an organisation’s corporate responsibility credentials.
