BT's green success

BT Global Services organised a session with analysts today to provide an update on the organisations strategy and portfolio around sustainability.

I was online (which means I missed chunks - don't ask) but there was some interesting information on the company's activities. I'm not entirely convinced about BT's efforts, which (like BT Global Services as a whole) seems to have selective coverage of the market, but there are certainly some areas where BT can make a significant contribution to its clients efforts.

There's no doubt, though, that the company has done a lot to reduce its own carbon footprint and is much more serious about addressing the issue than some other major ICT companies. Interestingly, the effort seems to have paid off. One comment made during the presentations was that BT reckons that their own internal efforts were a factor in winning around £1.8bn of business. It may have been a small factor in the decision, but even so ....
