ABSTRACT
The article reports that Global Services, the sustainability practice formed by BT, has launched a service to help large corporations and public-sector organisations reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint in Great Britain. The company's carbon-impact assessment service enables organisations to accurately calculate the amount of carbon dioxide emissions produced as a result of the use of networked information technology services, and also provides a set of workable solutions to help customers reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint. The service takes into account the way people's work patterns contribute to carbon dioxide emissions and how business operations, shared services and building infrastructure add to an organisation's footprint.
