One expert has claimed the UK has become the first country in the world to have mandated green IT targets for government chief information officers.

Green information and communication technology (ICT) specialist for the government Catalina McGregor told the Green IT '09 Conference in London that further details will be revealed in an update to the Greening Government ICT report due to be published in July, eWeek Europe relayed.

"We are the only country to have mandated targets for green ICT in the world," she said.

Penny Poyzer, a celebrity environmentalist working alongside printer manufacturer Brother, campaigned against office waste last year. She said small to medium-sized enterprises have an "enormous" part to play in making UK offices greener.

Ms Poser has appeared in television shows such as No Waste Like Home, which was broadcast on BBC 2.

Meanwhile, offices looking to be greener can recycle their old ink cartridges with the help of Cash For Cartridges.
