UK's First End User Environmental IT Board Meets in London

The inaugural meeting of the UK's first end user Environmental IT Leadership Team takes place this week in central London. Led by environmental charity Global Action Plan, and sponsored by international solutions provider Logicalis, the aim of the Environmental IT Leadership Team is to create an independent expert user group focused solely on exploring and publishing best practice sustainable IT strategies.

The group will question political, industry, technology, and expert witnesses and have the power to commission independent research into specific areas of concern such as the Data Centre, Information Growth, and Legislation.

Companies including British Medical Association, Sony UK Ltd., John Lewis Partnership, E.ON UK, CQS, the University of Cumbria and Lloyds TSB have already signed up to the group. The first meeting will provide group members with the opportunity to direct an initial piece of research assessing the impact of IT on the environment. The Group will meet every three months and will be supported by a dedicated programme manager from Global Action Plan.
