Have you every used a dirty website? No, I’m not referring to that kind of web site. I’m talking about web sites that are powered by fossil fuels.
Two-thirds of the world’s electricity is powered by fossil fuels so it’s quite likely that your online habits are not as clean as you might think.

There is little doubt that the climate crisis has to end, but what role does IT play in this? Greening with IT is a term we use to describe IT solutions that help to reduce emissions from other sectors and Green IT is a term we used to describe IT systems built with sustainability in mind.

In this talk I will take you on a journey from natural resources to electricity, data centres, application development, monitoring and optimisation.
My aim is to give you a clearer picture of the problem and hopefully some tools and inspiration to help you make your IT cleaner.
