The Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI) has launched its India chapter with nine major organizations including Dell, Intel, HP, Google, WWF, TERI, CII-ITC Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Development, MAIT and NASSCOM. The aim is to drive energy efficient practices in every-day computing.
“In next 3 years, the CSCI will cut greenhouse gas emissions in an amount equal to planting around 4800 sq.km. of trees, a significant step in reducing the emissions affecting our planet,” said Rahul Bedi, Director (Corporate Affairs), South Asia, Intel and First Chairman of CSCI India Chapter.
The nine founding members of CSCI India pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 4 million tonnes and reduce 50 percent in energy costs through efficient computing in next 3 years.
