Since we have the technology to put on virtual events, it’s nice to see some folks using it to promote green agendas without requiring attendees to hop on a plane and enlarge their carbon footprints.
Next week on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, BrightTALK’s Data Center community will be the online venue for the Sustainable IT Summit, a series of webcasts that promise to shed light on the state of Green IT and offer insights on how companies are successfully implementing techniques and strategies to reduce energy costs and limit their carbon output.
There are nine presentations on deck. Here are a couple that should help kickstart some sustainability programs at your business:
Priorities: Where IT Leaders Are Placing Their Green IT Bets
Presented Forrester’s Doug Washburn, Oracle’s Jon Chorley and KPMG’s Darren McGann.
Invisible Opportunity: Tapping IT Expertise for Green Leadership
Citi’s Global Operations and Technology Director of Sustainability, Michelle Erickson on how green geeks can be a source of sustainable momentum.
The Solution to Avoiding e-Waste Recycling Shame and Sham
Basel Action Network’s Jim Puckett brings some much-needed guidance on how to handle the thorny issue of e-waste.
