Calculating Your IT Carbon Footprint

Presented by

John Hall, Head of Strategy UK & NW Europe, Siemens IT Solutions

About this talk

The challenge for any organisation is to decide which initiatives in the 'Green' agenda will provide the maximum impact. Unless you have an understanding of the relative energy consumption of your ICT, for example, user devices, back office server rooms and data centres, you may end up tackling your carbon load based on ‘gut instinct’ rather than hard data. This webcast offers a practical overview of the challenges faced by any business leader; and shows how modelling your energy use across all silos in your business, including the ICT estate, can not only improve energy efficiency but reduce your carbon load and result in cost reductions and greater competitive edge.
