The Role of Legislation

I said in my previous post that the market will not really take off until legislation kicks in, but there is likely to be some reluctance by governments to be too heavy handed in their approach, with as much carrot as stick in enforcing compliance.

This partnership approach was favoured by another speaker at the Green IT Summit – John Doyle, who has the unenviable title of Sustainable Development Policy Co-ordinator, DG INFSO, European Commission. He brought the issue into focus with a quote from a European politician; “Everyone knows the right thing to do, but not how to get elected after doing it”.
