Greening Government ICT

The Government has launched Greening Government ICT: Efficient, Sustainable, Responsible. We are the first Government anywhere in the world to set out a strategy for reducing the environmental impact of our computer systems.

There are two aims: to make energy consumption of our ICT systems carbon neutral by 2012, and to make them carbon neutral across their lifetime (including manufacture and disposal) by 2020.

The strategy asks for immediate action, with simple steps implemented straight away.

One year on: A progress report on the Government's Greening Government ICT
