Green IT

The UK higher education sector as a whole is estimated to use some 1.5 million computers, 250,000 printers and 240,000 servers producing around 500,000 tonnes of carbon emission a year. The University of Liverpool’s Computing Services Department is at the forefront of Green IT initiatives in the HE community and is committed to minimising the impact IT has on the environment.
