CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Green IT in Practice is a practical book to help managers navigate a little
more easily through the mass of information surrounding Green IT. Written by
Gary Hird, Technical Strategy Manager for the John Lewis Partnership, who has
responsibility for progressing Green IT initiatives for John Lewis and
Waitrose, and endorsed by Trewin Restorick, Director of the environmental
charity Global Action Plan, this key book exudes tried and tested helpful
advice, techniques and examples. Green IT in Practice contains a variety of
ideas for establishing and formalizing a Green IT program within an
organization. The experience of the John Lewis Partnership's Green IT program
during 2007 and the first half of 2008 is discussed in detail and is a core
element.Chapters cover the link between general Corporate Social Responsibility
and Green IT, how to go about constructing appropriate policies and metrics,
and thoughts on how to engage with employees and suppliers. Individual case
studies on key Green IT initiatives are then discussed in turn, before the book
ends with a chapter considering how IT can begin to enable carbon footprint
reduction in the organization as a whole.
