For World Environment Day today (5 June) British businesses and workers are being reminded to switch off their PCs when they leave the office each night.
Fujitsu Siemens estimates that not turning off PCs costs UK industry £123m each year.
Dave Scott, head of communications at Fujitsu Siemens, said, “So many employees think it is sufficient to leave their PCs on standby, but we hope to crush that myth and encourage people to instead turn off their machines.
“As we are about to enter the summer season and the majority of people will be leaving the office for their one- or two-week annual break, we want companies to make sure that employees are not leaving their computers on standby for this protracted period.”
World Environment Day is a United Nations initiative commemorated each year on 5 June.
