    For many organisations, it’s not just about the basic aspects of switching off lights and computer screens. It’s about viewing “green” as a game changer — from the enterprise carbon and energy management systems, to the power management solutions, to renewables, to creating, developing and maintaining a corporate sustainability culture, to the cleantech revolution…

    “The other reason is that, if we do the *right* thing, then we’re gonna create a lot of wealth, and we’re gonna create a lot of jobs, because doing the right thing moves us forward” – Hon. Al Gore
