Public Service Green IT and Sustainability
Virtual Symposium

presented by Accenture and Microsoft

Tuesday, May 20, 2008 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm US Eastern Time (2 pm – 6 pm UK Time)

Amid intensifying scrutiny of its environmental impact, the IT function has reached a critical point. Now is the time when IT departments can decide to address climate change head-on…or they can choose to remain with the status-quo.

The reality is that public sector IT organizations – as the main energy consumers in the organization – have a unique opportunity to model the way forward on this important global issue. Collectively they can step up to the role of public stewards of the world’s resources by reducing their energy consumption. In fact, doing so could actually enable these organizations to increase efficiencies and save costs – all while demonstrating environmental responsibility.

The Public Service Green IT and Sustainability Virtual Symposium presented by Accenture and Microsoft will help public service organizations chart the way forward and take a holistic view of their environmental footprint.

Join us in an interactive discussion as we explore the areas where IT can have the most rapid and demonstrable impact on energy consumption. Hear from other public sector IT leaders who are already successfully implementing Green IT and Sustainability initiatives in their organizations. Participate in online demos and get advice from Green IT and Sustainability experts. Use this as an opportunity to network with your global public sector peers who face the same challenges and opportunities as you.
