UK drives Green Outsourcing

Green IT just got a shot in the arm with UK government's decision to make its IT operations carbon neutral. Here's what a report says:

The guidelines have created a new level of expectations for outsourcing providers, with environmental concerns entering the formal selection process for suppliers.

The report also points out that organizations may opt for outsourcing to help them cope:

At the same time technology outsourcing is expected to rise significantly if organisations are to deal with the financial burden of compliance with environmental regulation in-house.

We definitely see this as the beginning of a movement within many governments in the days to come. Outsourcing becomes a key strategy for organizations to help them comply faster, better and cost-effectively.
