Sustainable IT Seminars
Two meta trends will drive economic and social development in the 21st Century:
- The networking of the world, driven by innovations in ICT
- The need to create sustainable modes of living
Successful organizations will develop strategies to survive in a changing world. Strategies to reduce the eco-footprint of the growing volumes of ICT gear they consume. Strategies to harness the power of ICT to enable innovation throughout their enterprise.
To create sustainability strategies, people need a common vocabulary. To execute them requires changes in behavior and attitude. Education, from the boardroom to the shop floor, is the catalyst for change.
GreenIT offers the following standard seminars. Custom training is available on request.
Each GreenIT seminar targets a specific aspect of sustainability. All seminars cover basic elements:
- The difference between “green” and “greenwash”
- How to assess their organization’s current ICT eco-footprint
- How to create objective standards for measurement and performance.
- How to create a plan to reduce the cost and eco-footprint of ICT operations.
- How to document the benefits of greening IT.
- How to present and justify green ICT initiatives to stakeholders
