Computerworld Honors Top Green IT Companies

IDG's Computerworld recently announced the top 12 green IT companies as well as the top 12 green users of IT who have led the way in conserving energy and reducing their carbon footprint.

In today's business world, it's about efficiency, power consumption and applying those green principles to smart business decision making.  IBM, recognized as the leading Green IT company in our first Top Green-IT Computing issue, has taken a serious look at how they impact the environment and how they can address those challenges with good business sense, through their Project Big Green initiative and a company-wide focus on energy efficient technology and services."

Upon receiving Computerworld's recognition, Steve Sams, vice president of IBM Global Site and Facilities Services, said "IBM is honored to be named the Top Green IT company for 2008 by IDG and Computerworld.  This is reflective of IBM's long-term commitment to the environment, and of the global success with clients that we've seen with our cross-company Project Big Green initiative, as we assess and implement strategies for our clients to be able to double their computing capacity without increasing energy use."
