Fusion - A holistic approach to Green IT
As a major consumer of natural resources and electricity, IT is directly and indirectly responsible for producing significant amounts of greenhouse gases and toxic waste. The IT sector is responsible for approximately 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions – the same amount as aviation, an industry vilified by environmentalists.
It's not often that “doing the right thing” has so many benefits. Green IT is one of those few occasions whereby doing business in a slightly different way can have both a positive impact on the environment as well as reduce costs in the organisation.
UK legislation to come into effect in April this year under the Climate Change Act will require most large organisations to participate in the CRC (Carbon Reduction Commitment). We can help you understand how improving your IT can help you meet your obligations under the act and avoid penalties.
Fusion is a Green IT specialist that has worked with some of the largest companies in the IT sector, helping them improve how they work and their impact on the environment. The company’s business-minded approach balances ethical issues with those of reliability, availability and cost.
Using a holistic methodology, Fusion addresses all aspects of Green IT including the data centre, the office environment, working practices, legislation, certification and energy supply. Its consultants have considerable experience in specifying, implementing and running data centres, with a specific focus on cost management through conservative energy consumption.
How can we help you?
Fusion will perform a detailed Green IT assessment of your organisation to baseline you current environmental impact. From this we can determine the likely reductions in emissions and IT related costs that are possible. Our in-depth report will show where and how you can make these savings. We will also advise on current climate legislation and how it affects you.
Our risk sharing pricing model means that we offset some of the cost of our work against the real savings you make.
With this baseline in-place we will use our experience to work with you to implement a set of well proven changes that will measurably reduce your environmental impact and significantly reduce the cost of your IT.
