The Green Zone is designed to help you deliver cost effective, environmentally sound IT. We aim to keep you up to speed with all the important issues - compliance, best practice advice, case studies and news of environmental initiatives by the supplier community.

If green computing is to be more than a tick in the box for organisations on their CSR report, or a new sales gloss for vendors, it has to deliver tangible and quantifiable business benefits.

The Green Zone aims to help you identify the issues and the tools that can make a difference for your organisation and our environment
