The majority of the information technology industry has been slow to embrace the low carbon economy, missing out on opportunities.The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Gartner invited 24 global IT providers to participate in a study on climate change that examined whether the vendors and solution providers had created environmental offerings for customers.The study had five sections: Environmental basics, supply chain basics, carbon basics, carbon delivery and carbon champions. The first three looked at how providers run their business internally, their supply chain, and how well they communicate their work and impact on climate change.
