A new report has suggested that, despite the economic downturn, being green is still at the forefront of many office managers.

Symantec's 2009 Worldwide Green IT Report indicated that green IT is becoming increasingly important, particularly as a cost-cutting measure.

Meanwhile, Tracey Rawling Church, director of brand and reputation at the document imaging manufacturers and providers of Kyocera Mita, has claimed green technology and sustainability is well and truly in the vocabulary of business owners.

Ms Rawling Church was speaking at the Green IT 2009 Conference and Exhibition at the Business Design Centre in London on May 6th and 7th.

She said: "People have recognised that by taking a more sustainable approach to their office IT, in particular their printing and copying activities, they can actually save money."

The expert explained that a year ago there was more of a focus on corporate social responsibility, but attention has switched to a more cost-effective approach in the workplace.
