While new mandates around “green IT” and other sustainability initiatives are tackling the issue of the government’s energy consumption and environmental stewardship head-on, just imagine the difference it would make if government employees played their part too.
VMware is one organization that is trying to wave the flag for energy efficiency by joining forces with the government to help promote a sustainable environment through energy efficiency. How? VMware is encouraging government employees to take part in the Government Energy Challenge during the 30-days leading up to Earth Day on April 22.
It’s not a big deal, just a few slight adjustments in their day-to-day office routines to help reduce unnecessary energy consumption. Simple things like turning your desk light or computer monitor off when you are not there. When we all work together to make little adjustments, big results are possible.
