Energy efficient computing is becoming increasingly important for businesses, according to

The interactive portal claimed that IT departments will need to improve their performance over the coming years, as the industry consumes so much energy.

John-Paul Kamath, deputy technology editor for, said: "As 'green' climbs up the corporate agenda of most companies, managers inevitably will look towards the biggest users of energy within their companies – and that's likely to be the IT department.

"[Therefore] as it climbs the agenda, it will become increasingly an issue that IT departments will have to deal with."

In January 2008, a Butler Group report claimed that every IT manager needs to look beyond the 'green marketing hype' and get to grips with the environmental changes the industry is facing.

Furthermore, chairman of computing manufacturer IBM, Graham Whitney, announced last week at the Corporate IT Forum that the global IT sector needs Kyoto-style climate change targets, if it is going to deliver significant carbon savings.
