The EPA takes its role of environmental stewardship very seriously. Not only is the agency leading the nation's environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts, but it is also a leader in environmentally responsible computing. With the help of CSC and the groundbreaking Green IT strategies, the EPA has been improving energy efficiency, reducing costs and decreasing its carbon footprint. CSC is working with the EPA Office of Research and Development (ORD) to consolidate servers across its 13 laboratories. By employing server virtualization and advanced management technologies, the ORD has been able to reduce the number of servers by more than 60% and save an estimated $394,000 per year in energy costs.
