Green IT on Minds of CIOs, in a Big Way

Eco-friendly computing practices, collectively termed green IT, have gained significant CIO mindshare lately, thanks to the almost ubiquitous debate around enterprise carbon footprints and all things environmentally friendly. However, tighter regulatory measures and advances in technology are driving the renewed interest in green IT in firms' business strategies.
In an independent survey conducted by Datamonitor, over 75 percent of respondent firms considered eco-friendly computing as an important element in their IT strategy, while a further 15 percent rated it as their top IT priority. Furthermore, one in five firms has incorporated the green IT agenda into their business strategy, with a further third set to do so within the next two years.
