Britain top for green IT

Britain top for green IT
The UK is leading the way in adoption of low carbon IT practices, according to the Fujitsu Green IT: Global Benchmark.

Overall, the UK ranked first on the index, with a rating of 61 out of 100 thanks to its rigorous carbon reduction and carbon reporting strategy, beating the US and Australia which completed the top three.

"Tomorrow's business leaders will be leaders in sustainability; they will understand the importance of an integrated sustainability strategy," said Alison O'Flynn, global executive director of sustainability at Fujitsu Group.

"IT has a fundamental role to play in enabling change and must step up to face this significant global challenge."

Across the globe, the areas that show the most green progress are data centre management, networking, communications, cloud computing and end user efforts, while more work needs to be done on gathering metrics on an IT department's energy use and responsible practices for procurement and disposal.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Samsung will extend its Green Memory initiative with modules designed for PC and mobile application use, in a bid to help computer users cut down their energy usage.
