Green IT update

This blog was posted on behalf of Elaine Rainbolt, Industry Engagement Manager in our IT@Intel department.

Intel was selected as one of Computerworld’s Top Green-IT vendors for 2011. Computerworld identified organizations that are implementing IT best practices to reduce energy consumption in IT equipment and are using technology to conserve energy and lower carbon emissions.

Seventy organizations participated. Computerworld developed a set of criteria, with the help of green-IT industry experts. Based on the criteria and weighting scheme, the top 12 Green-IT Users and top 12 Green-IT Vendors were chosen.

One of Intel’s most impactful sustainability initiatives to date, is our Data Center refresh program, summarized in this 2011 Earth day video. If you want to learn more, read Intel IT’s Strategy for Sustainability paper.

This is the second year in a row that Intel has been selected for this award. Congratulations to Intel IT and all the other Intel employees who have been contributing IT Sustainability ideas, and participating in IT Sustainability initiatives.
