Samsung Electronics Joins Climate Savers Computing Initiative
Takes CSCI leadership role to drive the next generation of energy efficient computing
PORTLAND, Ore. — June 21, 2011 — Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI), a global consortium dedicated to reducing the energy consumption of end-to-end computing, today announced that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd has become a member of the CSCI Board of Directors. Samsung Electronics joins CSCI board members from Cisco, Emerson, F5 Networks, Google, Intel, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, and World Wildlife Fund as a leader in driving the deployment and adoption of energy efficient technologies.
CSCI is addressing energy efficiency across all aspects of computing. This includes PCs, servers and data centers, networking equipment, and connected devices such as smartphones and tablets. Members work collaboratively in groups that drive improvements and best practices for AC/DC Efficiency, Networking, and Computer Power Management. Within CSCI, Samsung Electronics expects to work with other members to increase the power efficiency of servers, notebooks, and a range of other equipment.
“As a member of Climate Savers Computing Initiative, Samsung Electronics is further demonstrating its commitment to dramatically reduce the energy consumption of information technology,” said George Goodman, executive director, Climate Savers Computing Initiative. “We welcome Samsung Electronics to the CSCI Board of Directors where the company will play an important role in helping to drive a more energy efficient and sustainable future.”
With today’s news, CSCI has grown to nearly 680 members. Organizations join as Affiliates and Associates and pledge to use power management and to make high-efficiency systems a requirement for their next computer purchase. More than 10,000 people have joined as individuals by pledging to use energy efficient computers and power management at home and work. To become a member or pledge support visit http://bit.ly/dDje42
About Climate Savers Computing Initiative
CSCI works to reduce IT energy consumption by increasing the energy efficiency of computing equipment, increasing the adoption and deployment of power management, and providing education about the financial and environmental benefits of energy efficient computing. CSCI has long partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program to accelerate the adoption of energy-saving technology and practices. The Initiative provides technical input into ENERGY STAR specifications and recommends systems that have earned the ENERGY STAR, so CSCI members and others can easily identify and procure energy efficient systems. The organization offers an online catalog of PCs, laptops, servers, power supplies and power management software that meet CSCI technical specifications for energy efficiency at http://bit.ly/ba9PDy.
