    Environmentally sustainable IT
    Reducing operating cost and capital cost
    Lessening environmental impact

  • 3. Why does Green IT fail?
    2009 Columbus Survey: most of the companies received marks between 32% ~ 37%
  • 4. Limited Scope of the Projects
    Many companies only implemented the Green IT projects to reduce data-center and desktop energy expenditures
    Never took any comprehensive approach
    Failed to bring Green IT to a corporate level
  • 5. Green-Washing
    Green-washing: direct limited effort towards the actual reduction in energy waste yet focusing on the advertisement of the sustainability initiatives
    Consumers felt deceived and manipulated
    Companies fail to disclose or consider hidden trade-offs
    Example: Cisco and Verizon advocated companies to produce their own primary electricity from fossil fuel; less energy cost -> more environmental footprint
  • 6. Misunderstanding of the Objectives
    Companies inexperienced with Green IT may rush into projects without examining the implications

    WellPoint, Inc. received $49,000 in the first quarter of 2008 by employing Intechra to dispose and resell its retired IT assets
    Legislative Mechanism
    Incentives and penalties
    Amount can be significant
  • 10. Public Recognition
    2007 EY study: significant positive relation between performance management and the ROE, but not shareholder value
    May be due to miscommunication
