Greenhouse Challenge Plus

The Australian Government runs the Greenhouse Challenge Plus program. This is to help Australian companies improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. So far there seem to be few ICT companies involved. This may be useful for those interested in Green ICT.

The process is that the organization joins the program, with the help of an adviser. The organisation commits to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Industry associations and consultants are catered for with a "Facilitative Agreement", where they help members and clients. The organisation then reports results via the environment web site.

Current members include Australian Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers, IBM Australia Limited and the Australian National University. There is also a Greenhouse Challenge Plus - Conference And Awards in Canberra 17-18 September 2007.
