Sustainability

Information Technology supports solutions that foster sustainable actions. Our division took the Northwest Plug Load Challenge, participated in the Environmental Protection Agency's Low Carbon IT Campaign, and received a $100,000 federal grant to install energy efficient servers. 

IT further supports the county's sustainability goals by: 
  • Purchasing "green" equipment and recycling old electronics.
  • Reducing energy use through virtual servers and consolidated enterprise systems.
  • Supporting video and telecom conferences.
  • Offering Web-based services to citizens.
  • Eliminating junk mail.
