In late January, IBM and the Economist Intelligence Unit hosted a
52-hour, around-the-clock web event called the Global Eco-efficiency
Jam in which more than 1,600 business executives, government officials,
NGO leaders, journalists, analysts and environmental experts from 60
countries collaborated to discuss best practices and practical actions
that can be taken now to create a more sustainable future for our
organizations, our customers, our industries, our communities and
society at large.
All 2,000+ best practices and recommendations generated during the
jam have been analyzed and will be released in a detailed report by the
IBM Institute for Business Value on April 21st. This report will serve
as a comprehensive guide to pragmatic steps organizations can take to
drive greater eco-efficiency across all areas of their organization.
The areas of focus in the report and webcast include Green IT /
Green Data Centers, Smart Buildings, Sustainable Business Operations,
Smarter Cities and Industries, the New Workplace and Raising the Bar -
Monitoring, Measuring and Reporting.
Whether or not you participated in the Jam, this webcast and
companion report are sure to provide you with ideas that can help
improve your own organization's sustainability efforts.
