Consulting firm Accenture released software on Wednesday built to help companies improve energy efficiency and reduce waste. The Accenture Green Technology Suite measures the "green" aspects of a corporation's information technology practices, data centers, and office operations.
The company provides a Flash-based snapshot of the tools on its Web site.
"By implementing the specific, tailored green recommendations, organizations can achieve measurable environmental improvements that contribute to bottom line savings," said Steve Nunn, who heads Accenture's green IT programs.
Accenture partnered with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group on recent research that determined that retrofitting existing data centers can achieve energy efficiency close to that of new data centers.
