|Government regulators and other stakeholders are increasing their demands on organizations regarding corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainable development. A key component of CSR is reducing an organization’s environmental impact and “green information technology” (green IT) can play a critical role in this effort. |
This report form the IIA Research Foundation summarizes what organizations and internal auditors are currently doing in the green IT domain and what they should be doing in this area. Selecting the best green IT solutions — and prioritizing those solutions — for an organization requires careful analysis of all the lifecycle costs (front-end and ongoing), benefits, and risks before selecting the appropriate solutions.
The book identifies significant opportunities for internal auditors to provide a wide variety of value-added green IT services in auditing, facilitating, and consulting.
