Greenpeace’s Cool IT Challenge calls on leading Information Technology (IT) companies to be champions in the fight to stop climate change. The IT sector possesses the innovative spirit, technological know-how, and political influence to bring about a rapid clean energy revolution. The IT industry must boldly step out in front of older, entrenched energy companies to develop a robust business model that helps the world achieve critical emissions reductions — a win-win for the IT industry as it pioneers a global shift to a clean energy economy.
Executive summary: The current version of the Leaderboard is Greenpeace’s third evaluation of the IT sector’s climate leadership. Companies have been and will be added or removed from the Leaderboard in accordance with their leadership performance. The Leaderboard includes a cross-section of the most significant and influential companies in the sector, and those which have previously demonstrated their ability to drive innovative change. In this third version of the Leaderboard, two companies have been added - SAP and Ericsson. Sun Microsystems, previously included in the Leaderboard, will be replaced in Version 4 by Oracle, which bought the company last year.
