Green IT

As governments around the world strive to de-carbonise our infrastructures, there is an cumulative pressure on all of us to consider the impact of our lifestyles on the environment, from the lightbulbs in our homes, the cars we drive to the way we dispose of our waste. The world of IT is no exception. It is said that each internet search places a burden of about .2kW energy consumption and there are quoted figures for each email we send. But just think how much energy this technology saves in wasted journeys to find information and the ability to shop without everyone making separate car journeys, often for a single item.

As IT managers there are a few simple steps we can take to reduce our CO2 burden with the added benefit of reducing our ongoing costs.
