The Green Grid (TGG) announces Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI) Will Move Under The Green Grid Brand

On July 19, 2012, The Green Grid (TGG) announced that the Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI) will move its programs and membership under The Green Grid brand to build on TGG’s success in improving resource efficiency in information technology and data centers. 
TGG and CSCI will fuse their separate but closely aligned resources together to accelerate the implementation of energy efficiency and sustainability within the IT and communications industries. 
As the global authority on resource efficient information technology and data centers, TGG
focuses its efforts on business computing ecosystems holistically, including all IT, facility and infrastructure systems.
CSCI, the international consortium focused on reducing carbon footprint of information and communications technologies (ICT) through improvements in energy efficiency and power management of devices, has helped the industry reduce its energy usage and CO2 emissions by 41-45M tons per year. With CSCI integrated into TGG, the plan is to cover the entire computing and communications ecosystem – from data centers to personal computers.
