Green IT And Schneider Electric's 4 Pillar Approach


The green IT strategy is more than a single-point solution, a talking point or a PowerPoint. It can become a guiding principle that drives productivity as well as sustainability, and solution providers are a central player. Now it has become a defined, measurable, quantitative and qualitative set of actions designed to reduce carbon footprint and boost productivity and bottom line for a business. According to a recent report from Ernst & Young, green IT encompasses products and services that help organizations diminish their environmental footprint, including the significant energy consumption of IT. Green software indirectly impacts technological energy use with low-carbon principles. “Green IT refers to IT products and services that enable organizations to reduce environmental impact, including the impact of IT energy consumption,” Ernst & Young Elizabeth Hackenson, Schneider Electric’s CIO, pointed out Schneider Electric’s four-pillar approach to Green IT, including: IT devices and best practices IT infrastructure assets Business collaboration strategies connected to efficiency and sustainability Green adoption practices communicated to company employees A key player in the company’s four-pillars is its EcoStruxure IT—available for solution providers as a means of digitizing the data center and bringing it into the realm of Green IT. “The implementation of green IT across all sectors not only can drive sustainability but also improve productivity, reduce operational costs and facilitate compliance with regulatory requirements and standards."
