Video Rewind: David Suzuki gets fired up about green IT

David Suzuki is a name synonymous with environmentalism and sustainability for Canadians. So it’s no surprise that he’s turned his attention to the IT industry during the last couple of years.

It’s been estimated that the global IT industry puts as much carbon dioxide into the air as the air travel industry, at about two percent. As our workplaces and our homes become more wired and filled with more electronic gadgets, that will only increase.
