About this talk

With more and more of us now working remotely there has been an increasing call on IT systems to support us continue working effectively. However, with this increase in demand has also come an increase in the amount of CO2 emissions caused by IT systems with recent estimates putting this at the same level as the airline industry. Obviously, this is neither desirable nor sustainable so what can we do about greening our IT systems so that in the future we will be seen as having been ‘good ancestors’?
