Meridian Energy – ICT Sustainability Quick Start & Footprinting

"The whole Quick Start process gave us real insight into how we could reach beyond our current ICT targets of sustainability. The benchmark report gave us something further to strive for, with clarity on how to get there."

Alison Howard, Sustainability Performance Advisor, Meridian

The customer

Meridian Energy is an integrated renewable energy company. It is the largest generator in New Zealand, with a strong pipeline of development options in Australasia, and also retails electricity throughout New Zealand. Meridian generates around 30% of the country’s electricity and owns and operates seven hydroelectric power stations, one wind farm in the South Island of New Zealand and three wind farms in the North Island. Meridian is committed to renewable energy, environmental stewardship and supporting the communities living alongside its assets, making it an authentically sustainable organisation. Meridian supports its customers with positive energy solutions, helping them to reduce their energy use.

The challenge

Meridian Energy had already implemented a lot of sustainable ICT programs. What could the company do next to achieve global best practice and keep its leadership position as one of New Zealand’s most sustainable companies?

The solution

The Fujitsu Consulting Sustainability team conducted an ICT Sustainability Quick Start Assessment. This is a rapid tool that includes interviews with key stakeholders, provided a global benchmarking analysis, current IT sustainability state and a detailed strategy on how to achieve best practice in sustainable IT.

The benefit

  • Full understanding of whole of ICT sustainability
  • Benchmarking of Green ICT maturity against peers
  • Detailed strategic roadmap and plan on how to achieve global best practice
  • User engagement led to the “buy in” of ICT sustainability
  • Established ongoing business support and long term goodwill with the client
