George O. Goodman Executive Director Climate Savers Computing Initiative

George_O_GoodmanGeorge Goodman is the Executive Director for Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI;, leading the efforts of this broadly based consortium. Started by Google and Intel in 2007, CSCI is a nonprofit group of eco-conscious consumers, businesses and conservation organizations. The Initiative was started in the spirit of WWF’s Climate Savers program which has mobilized over a dozen companies since 1999 to cut carbon dioxide emissions, demonstrating that reducing emissions is good business. The goal is to promote development, deployment and adoption of smart technologies that can both improve the efficiency of a computer’s power delivery and reduce the energy consumed when the computer is in an inactive state.

Prior to working with CSCI, George has led technology and product development in several Information and Computing Technology (ICT) companies, creating products ranging from full computer systems through communications products to branded consumer audio offerings, at Intel, Sequent, Xerox, and Bell Labs.

In addition, George led the Liberty Alliance Project, a cross-industry identity and authentication standards and policy consortium as its elected President for 2005 & 2006.

George earned his Ph. D. in Cognitive Psychology from the University of California, San Diego in 1980 following his Bachelor of Sciences in Psychology from the University of Florida in 1976.

George lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife Marsha. Beyond work, George is an avid photographer and advocate for creative use of virtual world technologies
