New Report Reveals Lack of Green IT Maturity

Green IT Logo_fŸr_appelWhile green IT has been a hot topic in the last few years, real progress has been slow, and the industry is highly unlikely to reduce its carbon emissions by 2020, according to a new survey.

Sponsored by Fujitsu, the “Green IT: The Global Benchmark” surveyed more than 600 CIOs and IT managers to determine the maturity of environmental-friendly IT practices and technologies used in organizations in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, and India.

The best-performing country of the four surveyed is the U.K. thanks to its stringent carbon-reduction and carbon-reporting regimen and high awareness of green IT. The United States ranked second, a function of the relative sophistication of IT use in the nation, followed by Australia, and India where end-user green IT is not widely implemented.

“Tomorrow’s business leaders will be leaders in sustainability; they will understand the importance of an integrated sustainability strategy,” said Alison O’Flynn, global executive director sustainability of Fujitsu Group. “IT has a fundamental role to play in enabling change and must step up to face this significant global challenge.”
