It has been two years since the Climate Group published "SMART 2020", a report that uncovered the IT sector's potential to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions to 15 percent of business as usual by 2020. Accordingly, this is the fourth semi-annual edition of the Cool IT Leaderboard, which ranks global IT brands on their efforts to build emission-slashing innovations, mitigate their own energy footprints, and support groundbreaking climate and energy policies. Each release of the Leaderboard reflects changing political and business realities and aims to capture a greater level of detail in measuring climate leadership across the IT sector.
While IT companies are increasingly taking advantage of industry conferences, corporate responsibility reports, and media interviews to discuss climate and energy matters, particularly as they relate to IT products and services, this latest assessment of IT leadership still reveals significant delay across the sector in turning potential into action.
