GREEN IT

David Blades made this Freedom of Information request to Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Sirs

In the press this weekend it was announced that SEPA had been leaving 400 PC's on overnight, wasting around 90,000 kwh per year, the equivalent of 280 hours of flying a jet plane. In order to combat this they have now introduced a Power Management software product. As you are a Public Sector body in Scotland I would like to know;

How many PC's do you have in your organization?
Do you use a Power Management software product (not the operating system: this is inefficient)?
Contact details for the person responsible for Green issues / carbon reduction commitments?

Many thanks,

David Blades
