Description:

Until recently, the environmental impacts of IT's use of fossil fuels and other resources were seen as a low priority issue. Now, driven by increasing legislation and soaring energy costs, the 'green agenda' is moving to the top of IT organisations' priorities for action. But what will it really mean for the future? In this session, Ian will talk about the different challenges and how they might be overcome, what legislation already exists or is planned that will affect our actions and how this might affect service management practice.
