Launch of the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon
August 18th, 2015 by Duncan Little
A sustainable IT policy is imperative to drive down your carbon footprint
A new voluntary certification and mark of excellence proposed by the Carbon Trust that enables organisations to demonstrate their success in cutting their carbon footprint could be a great benchmark. The standard targets any organisations looking to work proactively with their supply chains to factor improvements in sustainability across the whole value chain.
‘The Carbon Trust Standard for Supply Chain’ will be launched on 30th September 2015 in London. The supporting event will provide details on the development of the standard, its assessment methodology and benefits of the benchmark to those that choose to certify.
Places for People: Saved Thousands by Moving to a VDI
Places for People – a blueprint for sustainability
In 2000 the Places for People IT team was supporting 1,500 desktop PCs, in multiple locations across the country. With a 100% desktop-based IT infrastructure, staff had no option but to travel to a Places for People office each time they needed to access data or update information. Sometimes this meant hundreds of miles of driving just to log the outcome of a job.
With our support they deployed Citrix virtual desktops which slashed their carbon footprint by nearly 400 CO2 tonnes, as well as OPEX and CAPEX.
