Green IT in Practice, 9781905356621 (1905356625), IT Governance Publishing, 2008

There is a scientific consensus that we need to act rapidly to cut carbon dioxide emissions if we are to limit the most extreme effects of climate change. The IT sector is in a unique position to act as a catalyst for this change. By implementing simple efficiencies, the sector can reduce its carbon footprint – which currently is virtually the same size as that of the aviation industry. Crucially, the IT sector can play a major role in helping us all move to a low-carbon future by reducing the need for travel and enhancing communications.

Despite this potential for change, the IT sector has been surprisingly slow to address the issue of climate change. It is for this reason that the charity I founded, Global Action Plan, established the Environmental IT Leadership Team (EILT) – a unique advisory group consisting of major IT users seeking to make the use of IT more efficient. The first product of the EILT was a research report An Inefficient Truth which was launched at the end of 2007 at the House of Commons.

An Inefficient Truth illustrated the environmental impact of IT and the energy, security and supply issues associated with the huge growth within the sector. It explored the level of understanding that IT managers have around environmental issues and the challenges that they face internally, from vendors and from Government, in introducing more carbon-efficient policies. The report provided some practical examples demonstrating how a small number of organisations are starting to make a real difference in addressing this issue.
