As part of our efforts to support industry-wide solutions to environmental sustainability, Symantec recently joined Business for Social Responsibility’s (BSR's) The Future of Internet Power initiative. This new leadership initiative includes the world’s leading IT companies such as Adobe, eBay, Facebook, HP, salesforce.com, and now Symantec, and will identify and publicize best practices around low-carbon power sourcing for data centers in the United States, as well as helping Internet companies work more effectively with key policymakers and utilities.

Today we are happy to feature Ryan Schuchard, Manager, Climate and Energy for BSR, sharing his recent article on the initiative.
