Tech Sector is Leading the Way Businesses Reduce Carbon Footprint, Says Phaneesh Murthy

According to IT professional Phaneesh Murthy, leading tech companies are increasingly turning to green fuel sources.

More and more enterprises are beginning to take environmental conservation and energy efficiency seriously—and according to IT veteran Phaneesh Murthy, many members of the technology industry are leading the way. To prove his point, Murthy highlights a recent report from Computer World UK, which affirms that businesses like Apple, Google, and Microsoft are availing themselves of solar, wind, and hydroelectric power. Murthy has offered up a new press statement, celebrating this growing trend and commenting on the future of energy efficiency within the technology industry.

“As tech companies continue to innovate and make lives easier and better for all, it becomes an imminent responsibility on their part to not create newer problems while solving certain others,” opines Phaneesh Murthy, in his new press statement. “Green IT is the need of the hour and corporations like Google and Apple are showing the way that innovation has to be responsible in giving back to society in as many ways possible.”

Phaneesh Murthy continues by offering some specific examples. “Using renewable energies such as wind turbines and solar power for operations only shows that innovation is as much internalized for these companies as it is present in their products and services,” remarks Murthy. “Such acts must inspire all other corporations to take Green IT seriously and globally implement it in as many ways as possible.”

The Computer World UK report goes on to list some specific examples of tech companies offering up green initiatives and innovations. For example, the report notes that Microsoft is building a data center next to a Wyoming landfill, hoping to use its methane gas to power the data facilities. Likewise, Apple is making use of a major solar farm in North Carolina, while Google is eying wind farms in Iowa and in Oklahoma. The overall takeaway of the article is that America’s tech companies continue to grow and expand at staggering rates, and as they do so, they are “going green in a big way.” Indeed, the availability of clean energy resources has become a primary concern for these businesses as they seek to determine where to pool their money and their physical resources.

Even as these tech companies grow, many of America’s alternative energy sources—including wind farms—have become increasingly prominent.
