Called “Greener IT.ca”, the initiative is being spearheaded by CATA Director Michael O'Neil, CEO and CCO, IT in
“ I'm delighted to announce the launch of GreenerIT.ca,” said Mr. O’Neil. “GreenerIT.ca consists of many different initiatives, including a content-rich microsite, in-person and virtual events, and a print publication. All are designed to support a much-needed objective: helping Canadian managers in virtually every type of organization -- large and small, public and private sector -- gain concrete bottom-line insights and materials to engage their staff, shareholders, and communities in green IT activities.
The GreenerIT.ca campaign starts with a CATA TeleForum on Earth Day, April 22nd, at Mr. O’Neil will present some findings from original GreenIT research. At the TeleForum, Mr. O’Neil will be joined by Sean McDonough of APC and a few other guest experts to answer questions from the audience.
ACTION ITEM: Participate in the CATA TeleForum, which goes from 11-12 am (Eastern time) on April 22, by contacting Emily Boucher of CATA at 613-236-6550 ext. 4, or via email at email@example.com (please use Teleforum-Green IT in the subject line).
On that same day, a Green IT microsite will be launched, greenerIT.ca. The site will have forums, green IT news, white papers - and over time, video and webinars as well. People who register for the site will get access to members-only materials, starting with two white papers that written specifically to mark the launch. One of the white papers has more than 100 links to materials that can be used to investigate different aspects of a green IT agenda, and the other paper has links to web-based green IT calculators that can be used to assess the value of different green IT initiatives.
