Building a Long-Term Strategy for IT Sustainability
Intel IT is engaged in developing a broad, ongoing sustainability strategy to help Intel consume fewer resources and emit less waste. In analyzing the business case for IT sustainability, identified the bottom-line benefits and defined the metrics that enabled to effectively reduce environmental footprint. Successful sustainability initiatives are now being incorporated beyond the IT organization, and one will continue to take a structured approach to identifying solutions and instilling long-term sustainability. The paper analyzed the business case for IT sustainability - including bottom-line benefits, risk assessment, brand value, and definition of metrics - to determine which programs would yield the greatest benefits to Intel while actively engaging with industry to promote sustainability.
