Green IT Global publishes best practices

Posted by r.meneses

Green IT Global has published an overview of best practices in the field of Green IT. By doing so, the organisation – a partnership of Alliance Green IT (France), Green IT Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Green IT SIG (Switzerland) and Sustainability for London (United Kingdom) – aims to give an impulse to making the ICT industry in general and data centres in particular more sustainable.

GRIG, a multi-country alliance on Green IT in practice, is now sharing best practice examples grouped around the focal points of: Green IT Strategy, circular economy and Ecodesign, Datacenters and Networks, Awareness and Education, Green by IT (IT for Green), Recent Policy Developments.

This resource will benefit IT professionals in the private and public sectors, as well as policy makers and researchers, by providing guidance and inspiring examples of Green IT successes. Whether you are looking to update existing systems and practices or are just getting started with a low-impact approach to IT, this resource offers examples to adopt, adapt, and be inspired by.

The aim of this publication, and GRIG’s mission, is to be the ecosystem of knowledge and innovation on Green IT, and a driving force for innovation and sustainability. A collaboration drawing on the expertise of our member organizations in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK has led to the publication of this resource, to support readers in their own Green IT ambitions.

These projects were very successful. But there is (much) more to be done. Which is why we hope that after reading this document you feel inspired to increase your own efforts to drastically improve the environmental impact of your own business or your own city or region.
