The second Green IT Awards ceremony took place on May 19th, under the watchful eyes of the residents of London Zoo in Regents Park. Over 200 supporting guests gathered to see the outcome of the Green IT Magazine’s reader voting and the Judging Panel’s deliberations. The foundations for a great evening were laid with some fantastic support from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, The Department of Energy and Climate Change and Iomart Hosting, without whom the evening would not have been possible. Our thanks go to all of them for their support.
In addition to our continuing efforts from the previous year, we have established a dedicated Green Team who work on new and innovative ways to reduce the adverse impact IT has on our environment. We are currently working on our latest project:
Recycle a Phone
This aims at helping business owners with older legacy based hardware to upgrade to the new more energy efficient handsets in an environmentally friendly way. Customers simply sell Connexin their old handsets, which are recycled and they get special Green point discounts which can be used on our Going Green Range of handsets.
For our efforts, Connexin was awarded the 2011 Green IT Award for “E-commerce Innovation of the Year”.
