This issue also marks the one-year anniversary of TechNet’s Sustainable IT column.  It’s a great thing to be working for a company which is leading the way in developing best practices for environmental responsibility in our industry.

You’d be amazed how much money these practices can save your company, as well as the volume of precious natural resources they can save for future generations.  Not to get too crazy, but if you’re in a position to influence these practices where you work, you really owe it to your company, yourself, and your progeny to become proficient in these practices and advocate tirelessly for their implementation.
