The inaugural meeting of the UK's first end user Environmental IT Leadership Team takes place in central London. Led by environmental charity Global Action Plan, and sponsored by international solutions provider Logicalis, the aim of the Environmental IT Leadership Team is to create an independent expert user group focused solely on exploring and publishing best practice sustainable IT strategies. The group will question political, industry, technology and expert witnesses and have the power to commission independent research into specific areas of concern such as the Data Centre, Information Growth and Legislation.

Speaking in advance of the first meeting, Trewin Restorick, Director of Global Action Plan and chair of the Environmental IT Leadership Team commented, "Currently, the advice available to IT Directors and CIOs comes from technology vendors. Although the intentions are good, the advice can be sometimes confusing and contradictory. This green IT team will provide a forum to review vendors' advice and government policy, cutting through the techy and political jargon to give practical advice for creating a sustainable IT structure. The team will help peers put carbon reduction policies into practice and greatly reduce their environmental impact."
