Green IT x HAM

Green IT is all about minimising the negative or detrimental impact that the technology and systems used within IT has on the environment and our planet.  On the other side of that, HAM manages the lifecycle of said technologies, so you can quickly see the synergies and how HAM can support Green IT!

Our responsibility

This isn't saying that we want all ITAM professionals to hug a tree or not use anything electric, instead we are highlighting how we can help and what is within our scope and responsibility. Believe it or not, ITAM has a key part to play in supporting Green IT and our planet!
