  6. Key Findings of Our Research • There’s a lot going on in the region and some interesting clusters of innovation • But, there’s a lack of regional focus • Main driver is to reduce costs, not to be green • Greenwashing and a lack of transparency • Subsumed within other agendas • Time lag regarding Green IT skills

  7. Our Recommendations • Green IT regional showcase event • Regional Green IT blog • Green IT Special Interest Group – a community of interest/practice/expertise • Encourage a joined up region, connect to national activities e.g. BCS, e-Skills • Consider adding Green IT into regional initiatives e.g. ICT Active, Yorkshire Digital Awards, ICT Benchmarking Survey
