Meet sustainability goals
Organisations in public sector, regulated or production-heavy industries particularly need to reduce their impact on the environment. Choose Green IT initiatives.
What's getting in the way of progress?
On premises data centres
Managing your on-prem infrastructure is not only resource-heavy and time-inefficient, but it's also going to skyrocket your business' carbon footprint - not to mention the electric bill. But, you're worried migrating to a cloud or hybrid cloud solution won't be secure.
'Always on' offices
Have you thought about the power consumption in your office as a contributing factor to your impact on the environment? Even idling, PCs, laptops and other devices consume energy. The trouble is, policies for devices are not being followed consistently.
Asset sourcing and disposal
You want to be sure that your devices are being manufactured with environmentally friendly methods. And, that hardware assets are recycled after you switch. However, you don't know the best ways to manage this process while remaining cost-effective.
Pressure, without guidance
Every business should be committed to reaching net zero in the next decade. It's proven difficult to measure results for your initiatives, and regulators are saying you need to put more policies in place. How do you train the team without impacting productivity?
Our Green IT services
A sustainable IT roadmap
HTG provides EUC strategies that will reduce your carbon-footprint in line with legislation and regulations. That way, you can improve both employee work-life balance and productivity. Looking beyond the benefits of positively addressing climate change issues, your organisation will be more financially efficient, compliant and increasingly attractive to prospective staff and customers. By taking advantage of our expertise, you can modernise your business.
Seamlessly move to the cloud
One of the most high-impact ways to move towards net zero IT is by migrating your existing systems to the cloud. For regulated industries, such as the financial sector, we also offer multi-cloud and hybrid solutions to help you make progress, securely. We partner with providers who are committed to delivering digital workspaces and assets in a sustainable way. Microsoft is on track to being carbon negative within the decade, and is currently carbon neutral.
Built-in training for digital workspaces
We provide expert advice around sustainable IT policies and training along with best practices for repurposing existing devices or BYOD. You will receive one to one training, classroom training and handover documentation. We work with you from the early stages of migration, through to optimising your use of digital workspaces and devices over the long-term with environmentally friendly automations.
