From Making Waves

Back in March we launched our IT Climate leadership Challenge to the biggest IT companies to stand up and be counted in support of a strong Kyoto deal this year and lead the way in providing climate solutions across the economy.

Since then we’ve been following up letters sent to company CEO’s back in February in preparation for releasing company scores during May. With many companies it’s taking a long time to get answers but kudos to Sun Microsystems for sending and now publishing a response which already puts down a good marker for where they will score against others in May.

Sun Microsystems is a founding member of Business for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy (BICEP). A key principle among the eight put forth by BICEP is that the United States must achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050 and at least 25 percent reduction below 1990 levels by 2020. (snip) Sun’s CEO Jonathan Schwartz will be featured on a plenary panel at the upcoming (April 2009) Ceres conference. We expect that Sun’s support of BICEP and its principles will be featured in his remarks.

I’ve asked for more details from Sun on a few points but so far this is the best response.

So IBM, Dell, HP, Google, Fujitsu and co, now you know what you have to beat…..
