Interesting summary post here on TechEye discussing the EU’s positioning on Green IT, through the eyes of the research group Ovum.
It says “progress had been made” in this sector, however, public sector organisations are not yet strategically and developing green IT within their overall structure.
This could lead to an initiative that gets the ball rolling in one department but then offsetting it in another department by completely ignoring green initiatives. Essentially, with many EU organisations, one limb is working to keep the body moving towards an ecologically sound institute, but others are locking up and refusing to move. Efforts need to be made to convince executives and move organically towards energy efficiency.
