Green IT in Practice
How One Company Is Approaching the Greening of Its ITeBook - 2008
"Green IT in Practice" is a practical book to help managers navigate a little more easily through the mass of information surrounding Green IT. Written by Gary Hird, Technical Strategy Manager for the John Lewis Partnership, who has responsibility for progressing Green IT initiatives for John Lewis and Waitrose, and endorsed by Trewin Restorick, Director of the environmental charity Global Action Plan, this key book exudes tried and tested helpful advice, techniques and examples. "Green IT in Practice" contains a variety of ideas for establishing and formalising a Green IT programme within an organisation. The experience of the John Lewis Partnership's Green IT programme during 2007 and the first half of 2008 is discussed in detail and is a core element.Chapters cover the link between general Corporate Social Responsibility and Green IT, how to go about constructing appropriate policies and metrics, and thoughts on how to engage with employees and suppliers. Individual case studies on key Green IT initiatives are then discussed in turn, before the book ends with a chapter considering how IT can begin to enable carbon footprint reduction in the organisation as a whole.
