Green Computing Certification

CoSN Launches Green Computing Certification Initiative for School Districts/Schools

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) Green Computing Leadership Initiative provides tools, tips, and resources for school technology leaders to help reduce their school district carbon footprint. CoSN is pleased to announce an enhancement to the Green Computing Leadership Initiative that provides recognition for efforts by technology leaders to reduce their environmental impact. Included in the Green Computing Certification is the new EPEAT certification program for purchasing. The CoSN Green Computing certification also includes a focus on energy saving efforts, proper computer disposal and use of computers to reduce waste. Schools and districts receiving certification will be recognized on CoSN’s Green Computing website and the EPEAT website, and will receive a CoSN and EPEAT green computing certificate, plus logos to use on their website and other communications.

For more information and to request certification, go to CoSN's Green Computing website.
