Sustainable Information Technology

Manifesto – Green IT, Lower Costs and Doing the Right Thing!

1. Business can and should be exciting, ethical and innovative

2. Green IT must become a reality for organisations and individuals without huge expense

3. Doing the right thing is its own reward – we do it because we can, not because we should

About Green IT helps to implement sustainable IT in businesses and homes. We advise organisations on how to make Green IT a reality. About Green IT focuses on reducing carbon footprints and associated costs by explaining technical issues in a non-technical way.

We cover a broad range of issues, but when necessary, we dig deep and get to the heart of what our readers and clients need to know in what is a complex and constantly changing environment. We go beyond the latest fad, buzz-words and hype.

You can implement Green IT AND decrease IT Spend

About Green IT also explains and simplifies the Green IT life cycle. This includes choosing the right technologies, evaluating suppliers, buying (or NOT buying) equipment… right through to disposal and recycling of PCs and other IT kit, all the while maximising IT ROI.

You can do the right thing AND enhance your reputation

For organisations, About Green IT is a source of advice and help on formulating a sustainable IT strategy. We help you to plan, and then ensure those plans are delivered. We also advise on how to incorporate Green IT into a wider Corporate Social Responsibility policy and ensure that customers, employees and other stakeholders are aware of the progress being made. We do this by helping you to optimise your social media communications.

You can green your IT without spending a penny on expensive technologies

Green IT is not just about technology – it’s about processes too. Green Process improvement is the way forward, and we are proud to be at the forefront of innovation in this area. We are the pioneers of Green process implementation, integrating and embedding best Green IT practice into ITIL processes and the COBIT framework.

About Green IT’s mission is to bring sustainable information technology into the mainstream by demonstrating that it goes hand in hand with lower costs, greater efficiency and more ethical business practice.
