GreenPeace: Have you heard Sun Microsystems is the first with response on climate leadership

Jonathan Schwartz, CEO, Sun, The Green Technology CompanyIn March 2009, the Greenpeace organization launched an IT Climate leadership Challenge to the CEOs of some of the largest IT companies in the world asking them to stand up and be counted in support of a strong Kyoto deal this year and lead the way in providing climate solutions across the economy. 

Greenpeace asked that these corporations provide real solutions for the imminent threat of global warming while also tackling the current economic crisis by turning climate change into a business opportunity. They outlined four specific criteria for IT companies as part of the challenge.

  • Publicly demonstrate their support for a strong Kyoto deal
  • Lobby their national governments to support strong global mandatory Kyoto regulation
  • Significantly cut their own company's absolute emissions
  • Ensure a large scale increase in their company's own use of renewable energy

  • The good news is Greenpeace has recognized Sun as the IT leader. And more good news come from New York City, where Sun is being recognized as part of the Uptime Institute‚Äôs Global Green 100 List. Sun's VP and Distinguished Engineer for Energy Efficiency, Subodh Bapat, is in NY to accept the prestigious award that honors the achievements of global corporations with a commitment to increasing energy efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint of their enterprise IT and datacenter operations.
