California Greening

The World Resources Institute (WRI), a US environmental think tank and partner in the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, has announced the formation of the Green Power Group – California Affiliates. The idea of the partnership is to share best practices for purchasing and developing new sources of clean, renewable energy to help them meet green targets and reduce the risk from uncertain electricity supply and prices.

This is the third such partnership put together by WRI, but it’s notable for the participation of IT companies based in the state. The 14 prominent energy buyers that have formed the group include AMD, Apple, BT Americas, Cisco, eBay, Google, HP, Intel and Intuit.

This really is the way to go. One thing the IT industry is good at is partnering.
