There’s more to green IT than energy efficiency

Replacing IT equipment with more energy efficient products is one of the ways we can do our bit to tackle global warming. However, this is not the whole story. I interviewed Gartner research director Simon Mingay last week. He is speaking next week at Gartner’s ITxpo in Barcelona on the subject of green IT.

On the desktop, Simon believes the biggest environmental cost is not energy inefficient desktops and printers, but the inefficient supply chain. If the hardware makers could get this right, they would be able to make greener PCs at lower cost – savings that could be passed onto the end user.
