“Greening Government ICT”

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

The Cabinet Office has today published “Greening Government ICT”, which sets out the steps Government will take to reduce the carbon footprint of their PCs, laptops, data centres and other office equipment. “Greening Government ICT” also sets challenging targets for central Government and the executive agencies, and provides guidance on how these can be achieved.

The document “Greening Government ICT” can be downloaded from the CIO Council website along with a list of potential energy saving measures for ICT at www.cio.gov.uk/. Copies have also been placed in the Libraries of the House.
