Sun Shines on Earth Day
By crossrohrer on Apr 22, 2008
Today Sun was honored by InfoWorld as one of the Green 15: companies and organizations that have undertaken the best
projects in the past year. Sun was selected for our datacenter consolidation project, focused on Santa Clara, Calif, Bangalore, India and Blackwater, UK. The Santa Clara datacenter alone reduced power capacity demand by 75 percent. And the project saved Sun $1.1M per year in energy costs. Check out the article here.
This morning I got an email from our vice president of eco responsibilty Dave Douglas that was an inspiring start to Earth Day. Dave says that he's approached weekly by employees at Sun wondering if the eco team is hiring. And he tells them, "you already have an eco job!" If we each bring our personal passion for eco responsibilty to work, we can look at all of our projects and responsibilities in a new green light. Dave wrote about this idea in Environmental Leader a couple weeks ago. Read his column here.
