Green Technology in the UK
June 25, 2007
Businesses across the globe are looking to take responsibility for their environmental impact and to reduce the rate at which they're allowing global warming to occur.
Along with this responsibility has been an increased need for businesses to take steps to reduce their carbon footprint—or the amount of Co2 emissions created through daily activities.
But findings from one study conducted by The Green Technology Initiative reveal that UK businesses, while they are all for 'going Green' and understand that IT systems do play an important role in the big picture, have not taken action of their own to reduce the carbon footprint, but instead look to the Government, suppliers and hardware manufacturers to help reduce the impact.
The study's findings also reveal businesses just now beginning to do such things as turn off systems when not in use. Not a BIG step, but at least one in the right direction.
