Later today, I'll be summing up the discussions around the table at a roundtable event I took part in in Reading called 'Engaging with the Disengaged On Sustainability.'

Attendees for the event, which focused on getting SMEs to embrace sustainability, included Kyocera Mita, the Global Cool Foundation, Clarkslegal, Forbury Environmental, the FD Centre, Connect Reading, Reading Borough Council, Thames Water, Integral, Ennismore Partners, Locus, Reading Football Club, CBS Business Interiors, and C8 Consulting.

In the meantime, I came across a notification that the 6th International Green Awards for Creativity in Sustainability have opened for entries, and are looking for sustainability 'heroes'. These awards, which follow hot on the heels of the recent Green IT awards, will feature a ceremony at the end of November at the Natural History Museum. You can visit the awards portal here for more information, including details of categories, such as the Best Green Technology award.

The Guardian is running some sustainable business awards for companies that have recognised the importance of integrating sustainability into the core of their operations to ensure their future success.

The aspiration is that this creative potential will lead to the development of innovative practices, ranging from technological solutions to energy efficiency to intelligent supply chain management that can be shared as best practices.

The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards have been created to recognise the sustainability leadership these companies are providing. You can find out more about the awards here

But time is running out: entries close on February 7th.

How to make data centres efficient

I came across this piece by the excellently-informed Liam Newcombe of the BCS Daata Centre Specialist Group on the Guardian's Sustainable Business site's low carbon ICT blog. 

Liam argues that we need to adopt a different approach to data centre energy efficiency. He suggests, "We should put in place a cost of goods and services model which allows us to determine the financial and energy cost of each delivered product. This would also assist in creating a competitive market for energy efficient data centres by allowing the consumers to compare service providers - not on an abstract marketing number, but on the actual energy consumption or carbon emissions."

While you're visiting the Sustainable Business site, you might think about entering the Sustainable Business Awards. You have until 7th February to enter.
