Climate Savers Computing Initiative is merging its programs and membership under The Green Grid brand.
Two initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of the information technology and communications industries announced Thursday that they will merge under The Green Grid brand.
Climate Savers Computing Initiative, a Portland-based nonprofit that grew out of Intel Corp.'s efforts to improve the sustainability of computer technology, will move its program's under the umbrella of The Green Grid, which is based in Beaverton.
Both groups are company consortiums bent on improving efficiency of computing.
The Green Grid will create a new program, modeled on Climate Savers' Power Management pledge, called the Sustainable Computing Initiative. It will ask organizations to commit to procurement and power management goals.
"We're very enthusiastic for these two important organizations to unite and experience the benefits that this move will bring to the industry," said Lorie Wigle, founding president of Climate Savers Computing Initiative and an Intel executive heading up the company's eco-technology division, in a press release."Both CSCI and TGG have made significant impact as they seek to promote efficiency across the different sides of the IT energy equation. Together, we feel our combined expertise will only increase that impact as we collectively seek to address these critical issues."
