IBM Launches "Green Sigma" consulting service
The consulting practice examines energy use and water use at enterprises, and can include supply chain partners as well. It then makes recommendations on ways to save on those resources. The practice goes beyond IT, but clearly IT can benefit tremendously from it.
IBM claims that since 1990, its internal own green efforts have saved a total of 4.6 billion kWh of electricity and more than $310 million, as well as avoiding more than three million metric tons of CO2 emissions.
