Download Experience shows that wasted energy can cost tens of millions of pounds: environmental awareness goes with a keen eye for the bottom line. Combined with the financial impact of energy efficiency, in the current political climate, the responsible use of energy has serious implications for an organisation´┐Żs public image.

This paper explores how an organisation can sustainably reduce its carbon footprint and its costs at the same time. It is a practical study, drawn from real examples and actual observations, and is amongst the most detailed investigation into the management of workplace IT systems ever undertaken. It is presented in order that public sector organisations and businesses alike can share and use this best-practice, fact-based method to assess and reduce both carbon footprint and financial waste.
