A recent Swedish study showed that the use of IT to reduce the companies environmental impact (98%) is now the most common part in Green-IT strategies (in Sweden) with 80% including it. Interesting to note how the opportunity/solution perspective is becoming mainstream. Will be interesting to see what the next study show and get more information about the actual content of the studies.
Note: The translation of the categories is mine and not perfect. The question asked was: "What does your Green-IT strategy include?"
Those participating in the study were head of IT, CIO’s, etc in private (61%) and state owned (39%) companies and organizations in Sweden with more than 200 employees. 464 participated in the study.
