Cost cuts 'main reason for green IT'

Cost cuts 'main reason for green IT'
Financial motivations are leading more companies to turn to green IT, according to an industry source.

While using energy saving technology helps a firm's environmental credentials, James Murray of a publication that gives advice on green business operations, claims that it is the money savings that are prompting businesses to use the new technologies.

The BusinessGreen.com editor said that technologies such as virtualisation could deliver savings of "anything between 70 and 80 per cent".

He added that businesses "are saving quite big money on these projects and they're getting returns on their investments over relatively short periods, so there's a strong commercial case for these types of projects and the [reduction in] CO2 emissions come in as a happy upside".

Last year Kyocera Mita published its environmental office research, which showed that 68 per cent of businesses already have environmental measures in place.

It also revealed that 58 per cent of IT/technology businesses are aiming to be carbon neutral.
