We delved deep into the realm of how technology can drive environmental sustainability. The discussion was filled with insights on practical strategies to reduce energy consumption, minimize electronic waste, and mitigate carbon footprints within IT operations. This event not only highlighted why Green IT matters for businesses but also how embracing these principles can lead to cost savings.
