Concern for the environment is rising up the corporate IT agenda. One in three European organisations are now taking "green" factors into account when evaluating and selecting IT suppliers.
The IT suppliers, for their part, are doing their utmost to proclaim their green sensibilities. But no matter how much importance end users and their suppliers attach to environmental issues, investment in new, greener technologies will only happen if it delivers a solid return on investment.
For this reason Computerworld UK, along with our sister publications CIO and Techworld, is launching a dedicated channel on Green computing. It will include news, views, how-tos, case studies, information on legislation and lots more on the world of environmentally-viable IT.
Computerworld UK is keen to work with IT professionals to champion enterprises that are striving to improve their environmental profile. This could be through working to reduce their carbon footprint in innovative ways, recycling IT equipment to the developing world, or negotiating with suppliers with a green conscience.
Let us know what you are doing to deliver green IT. Let us know whether your suppliers are delivering the goods or simply applying a coat of “greenwash” to a “business as usual” approach. Tell us if the growing number of environmental rules and regulations are a help or hindrance to your efforts to deliver environmentally sound IT.
If you want to check the pulse of green and environmental and get a clear sense of the priorities, direction and concerns of your fellow IT professionals, Computerworld UK’s Green Zone is designed for you.
