First is “Green Design Hits The Prime Time,” such as Apple’s “Greenest Notebook” new Macbook. Next is “Dealing With The E-Waste Problem,” which resulted in calling out the EPA in September for essentially doing nothing to help curb the massive e-waste being produced. After that is “Energy Management,” which was huge for a business like Symantec, who found a way to save $800,000 a year by automatically shutting off unused computers and electronics. And finally is “Green Data Centers,” like the ones built by IBM and NetApp, working to curb global greenhouse gas production. All of these advances combined show that IT is the solution to many environmental problems, and in that case, we have a bright future!
