New research from TGIR

Readers may be interested in some additional resources and research available from The Green IT Report (TGIR):

The web site now has links to the green IT portals of a number of major IT vendors (see the sidebar). The links lead to descriptions of the main green activities of the companies (portal is sometimes a generous term), which ideally covers both internal environmental actions as well as products and services available to clients (though this is not always the case). It's a means to quickly check the headline sustainable activities of these companies.

In addition, readers may be interested in a forthcoming series of green IT company profiles. These are in-depth examinations of the green activities, particularly related to climate change, of major IT companies and also of vendors that have a specific green focus in terms of the software or IT service they offer.

If you are actively involved in green IT, want to understand what other companies are doing and who your competitors are, or want to identify potential partners, then these profiles will give you an inexpensive head start.

The profiles are based on personal meetings and discussions with the companies and will cover:

- Company background

- Approach to Green IT - internal organisation and structure around CSR, sustainability and climate change

- Internal actions - the extent to which the company is addressing its own carbon footprint and greening its products and services

- Market offerings - the market focus and details of the products and solutions offered to clients

- Strategy and performance - business generated through green IT and strategy moving forward

- TGIR comment - The Green IT Report's critical assessment of the company's strategy and performance in addressing climate change, both internally and for clients.

The reports will be around 10 pages in length and competitively priced at £250 each. The first two will be available shortly and will cover Greenstone Carbon Management, the UK specialist carbon solutions company, and Infor, the mid-market software supplier.
