2012 carbon capping targets IT

18 November 2007

The comments follow the launch of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme last week, which issued CO2 limits that countries, including the UK , must not exceed between 2008 and 2012.

 

Currently, 50% of UK business sectors, including chemicals and fuel suppliers, are covered by EU limits.

 

Alan Whitehead, Labour MP for Southampton Test and chair of the Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group, said the IT sector is bound to be affected when the next phase of limits is announced after 2012, suggesting the move to thin client computing as a way forward for businesses.
