Systems integrator Logicalis is offering new and existing users subsidised environmental training through Global Action Plan, an independent charity that specialises in helping businesses and individuals to go green.
Chris Gabriel, Logicalis head of solutions, said the Logicalis Responsibility Squared programme was a shortened version of Global’s year-long consultancy service.
“We were finding that among our customers green computing is high on the agenda for cost reasons, but when we spoke to the IT guys there was a lack of awareness of it.”
Gabriel added that the scheme would help the IT department to make the business and cost case for using IT best practices and environmentally friendly technologies such as virtualisation.
Responsibility Squared is available now, with several universities and a couple of private sector companies already signed up to the offer, according to Gabriel.
