The second annual Green IT trend survey by CDW Corporation is out and entrepreneurs are not letting the current economic downturn stall green IT initiatives. In fact, researchers found small businesses are the most likely to invest in Green IT in the coming months, even in light of the recession. Small businesses came out on top for green IT plans over other sectors including government and large corporate initiatives.
Nearly a third (31 percent) of small business IT decision makers say their companies plan to implement Green IT initiatives in the next two years!—more than any other corporate or government sector. More than half (54 percent) still report cost as the greatest barrier to implementing Green IT solutions.
