The environment, sustainability and the Spending Review

There’s no escape from the Spending Review today, though a couple of conversations this morning have already suggested that there may be less detail in terms of implementation than we expect. In other words, we may get less of Chapter and Verse, and more a case of title, author, contents and preface.

Interesting post on the Guardian environment blog with a list of things to look out for. (though not a lot here that screams too much about Green IT.) And some more background on George Osborne’s green challenges.

And there’s an interesting piece about corporate sustainability, discussing five key corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability trends over the last year.

Broadly these are:

1. The influence of a new generation

2. The impact of social media

3. Leadership

4. The need for actions, not just words

5. Collaboration
