IDC Canada announces the launch of “You, Me & Green IT,” a groundbreaking event taking place on April 9 and 10, 2008, at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto.

“We are particularly proud to crown our outstanding speaker line-up with the participation of world-renowned environmentalist and Canadian icon, Dr. David Suzuki,” said Vito Mabrucco, managing director of IDC Canada.

This Green IT Forum will bring together technology, business, and environmental thought leaders, with IDC’s expert analysts to answer the tough questions:

Where do IT, government, and communications companies fit into the environmental landscape?

What changes can Canadian organizations implement now, in their consumption and use of technology, to decrease the impact on climate change?

Is it possible for Canadian Information Communication Technology (ICT) companies to become global leaders in the development of new, greener technologies?

The IDC Canada event will feature: an Executive Panel Environmental Challenge; a Green IT syntegration/strategic working session to serve as a foundation for creating Green IT workplans; end-user case studies, providing attendees with practical information to help them operationalize Green IT; as well as youth participation, since they will be the big users of technology in the future. Sponsor partners, along with IDC analysts and other experts, will provide a vision of Green IT that makes clear the opportunities and challenges faced in the marketplace.

Conference attendees will leave with a greater understanding of the tools and processes being used to manage, control and optimize their impact on the environment while also having a positive impact on the bottom line.
