Regular readers will know that GBN's sister publications IT Week and Computing have spent much of the past year building up a wealth of coverage on the green IT movement and the importance of limiting the environmental impact of firms' IT infrastructure.
Now the two magazines have joined forces to host the BusinessGreen web seminars, a new series of four live video broadcasts which will bring together leading experts in green IT and provide viewers with best practice advice on how to limit the environmental footprint of their energy hungry IT departments.
Supported by headline sponsor VMware and gold sponsor Ricoh, the first of these web seminars will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3pm GMT and will look at the business case for adopting a green IT strategy.
The session will be chaired by Computing editor Bryan Glick, who will be joined by Francis Rottenburg of the Carbon Trust, Computing's green IT reporter Tom Young, senior regional director at virtualisation software specialists VMware Lewis Gee, and myself.
You can register to join the interactive web seminar here.
Following on from this introductory session the second web seminar on 23rd May will look at some of the best practices IT departments should adopt to become green; the third on 20th June will explore how several leading UK businesses are greening their IT operations; while the fourth and final seminar on 18th July will address how firms can ensure their IT kit is disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
Not only will these four events provide you with much of the information required to start running a greener and more energy efficient IT department, you can also see first hand how green IT can help limit environmental impacts and drive productivity by participating in the online seminars without leaving your desk.
So, if you are interested in finding out more about why you should be running a green IT department and how to do it, sign up today.
