Quotes

Scot Finnie, Editor in Chief, Computerworld
"Smart organizations know that there are energy and money savings beyond data center walls, and even beyond the IT department. Green-IT efforts are found up and down the supply chain, from the data center to the desktop, from the mainframe to the end user. The organizations recognized in our second annual Top Green-IT issue have explored new ways to apply technology to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions in every part of their operations."

Richard McCormack, SVP, Marketing, Fujitsu
“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the Computerworld Top Green-IT Organizations for the second consecutive year. Fujitsu has been working to reduce its environmental footprint for more than a decade - sustainability is part of the company’s DNA.
