Big Energy Saving Week has got us thinking about how technology can have a positive impact on our carbon footprint and energy efficiency.
📱 Working remotely offers huge advantages. Technology now allows us the option to work from almost anywhere, which reduces travel time. You can access applications that bypass the requirement for desk phones, VPN’s that allow access to the company network and collaboration tools that grant easy communication.
☁️ Cloud storage is a great way to securely store data, and not only that, but it has also been proven to be more environmentally friendly. A lot of companies opt for servers that are inefficient and particularly energy consuming; however, our state-of-the-art virtual hosted cloud environment is fully managed by us, meaning we have the ability, and responsibility, to ensure the data centre is working as efficiently as possible.
🖥️ As technology develops, software and hardware are continually becoming more user- and eco-friendly. Updating your hardware may seem cumbersome, but new technology will increase staff productivity, and reduce the carbon footprint. For example, LCD screens use less than around 1/3 of the power that CRT screens require. If you plan on updating your systems, you can also recycle your old hardware
Much smaller changes can be made to reduce the carbon footprint of your electricals, such as built-in power options or even changing your screen brightness. If you’d like to find out more about how Taylor Made can support your tech journey, send us an email today email@example.com.
