Green IT: Who, What, When, Where and Why?

Chris Hammond-Thrasher, MLIS CISSP

Fujitsu Canada

IT - or at least the energy consumed by IT - is a growing source of global greenhouse gas emissions. Government and industry are increasingly turning their attention to IT as a potential engine for emission reductions. Methods are being introduced to reduce the emissions footprint of IT operations - from improving data centre cooling and power consumption, to increasing the efficiency of end user devices. At the same time, innovators are looking to IT to enable emission reductions through increasingly sophisticated power management systems - from smart grids to smart buildings. This session will explore some of these trends and what they mean for public and private organizations in Alberta.


Chris Hammond-Thrasher is an Associate Director with Fujitsu Canada specializing in Security, Privacy and Technical Risk based out of Edmonton. Chris is also a founding member of Fujitsu Canada's Green IT core team which is tasked with bringing Fujitsu's substantial experience in sustainable IT in Japan, Australia, the UK and the US to the Canadian marketplace.
