"Eco stands for both ecology and economics. Running eco-friendly servers offers compute power at reduced energy for both the machines, and the air-conditioning, to cool data centers. This in turn leads to less pollution and global warming, while ensuring that less money goes to energy bills used to cool the data center. Therefore, eco-friendliness benefits everyone as it saves the earth and saves money for businesses."1

- Lionel Lim, President for Asia South and Greater China, Sun Microsystems,2 California, in October 2008.

"We firmly believe business cannot be built at the cost of ecology. It is not sustainable. Ecological Sustainability will increasingly be the defining force for society and business globally." 3

- Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Limited.,4 Bangalore, in June 2008.

"Wipro, an iconic Indian brand, prides itself on its strength in the Technology and Enterprise domains. It's high time it used these strengths to make the much-needed shift to clean production and build a competitive edge by introducing products that do not cause harm to the environment or to people."5

- Ramapati Kumar, Toxics Campaigner, Greenpeace India6, in September 2005.


A study from McKinsey & Co7 pointed out that the information technology industry was responsible for two per cent of the world's total carbon emissions in 20088, almost equaling that of the aviation sector. By 2020, this was estimated to go up to three percent.
