Ely, England (PRWEB) October 10, 2008
As climate change intensifies and long-term energy prices remain high, it becomes ever more important for organisations worldwide to take action to reduce their CO₂ emissions and to increase energy efficiency. Greater environmental awareness, coupled with pressures from consumers, legislators, and rising fuel costs, is pushing the IT community towards Green IT. IT Governance offers a range of products and services for Green IT including a new book called Green IT in Practice.
This book was written by Gary Hird, Technical Strategy Manager for the John Lewis Partnership, who has responsibility for progressing Green IT initiatives for John Lewis and Waitrose, and was endorsed by Trewin Restorick, Director of the environmental charity Global Action Plan. It is packed with tried and tested helpful advice, techniques and examples for implementing a Green IT action plan.
Gary is hosting a free webinar on Thursday 16th October 2008 at 4.00pm which will focus on how his organisation has tracked its Green IT initiatives and how they went about engaging employees and suppliers in the initiative. It will also look at the future, especially the year ahead, and what organisations might want from the IT industry to help them meet their wish lists for Green IT. There will also be the opportunity for questions and answers at the end of the webinar.
Gary has recently been shortlisted by the British Computer Society for the Intel IT Leader of the Year Award.
