The Gartner webinar conducted in April 2009 among
more than 130 attendees from the infrastructure and operations
(I&O) management found that although green IT issues remain at the
top of the agenda, respondents consider vendor and green procurement a
low priority activity for the next 18 months. Although 68 per cent of
respondents thought data centre energy management is their most
important green IT issue for the next 18 months, only 7 per cent
consider green procurement and pushing vendors to create more energy
efficient and greener solutions as their top priority.
