Carbon3IT Ltd is a sustainable IT Consultancy. We aim to reduce the financial and environmental cost of using IT in business by helping companies to reduce their energy bills; reduce their carbon footprint; meet new and upcoming legislation or guidelines and minimise their impact on the environment.
So how do you do that?
Firstly, we spend time understanding your business and how it currently uses technology to provide its products and services. We visit your premises and conduct a survey of your current hardware and software, talk to your management team so we understand your business and how you do what you do and how you want to do it moving forward.
From this we produce an in depth report that details the current infrastructure and practices and makes recommendations as to how your business could reduce its costs, on a business case basis, going forward.
We constantly scan the market for products that could benefit our customers and have developed some great working relationships with a number of market leading organisations. We only ever recommend products and services that provide real benefits to our customers and are open about any commissions we receive on product sales.
Our portfolio includes PC power management & DCIM (Data Centre Infrastructure Management) tools, Green PC's, Green storage and green servers, as well as smart meters.
If you engage us for any of our services you'll benefit from our extensive knowledge of the resource efficient, green IT or sustainable IT marketplace and practices throughout the industry.
Practicing what we preach - our web servers are Made in Sheffield by Very PC, are powered by electricity supplied by Good Energy and the server is maintained by the Webarchitects Co-operative and we run a desktop Broadleaf by Very PC in the office as well as using laptops.
What else do you do?
We are authorised BCS/DCD CEEDA assessors, this means we visit clients on behalf of the CEEDA programme and assess their data centres to the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres best practices. We also review applications for the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres participant programme.
Our Consultants provide advice and assistance in designing and building new data centres and specialise in disaster recovery planning and extreme climate solutions.
We provide a range of review services for companies wanting to be a participant in either programme (CEEDA or EUCoC), where we visit your facility and assist you in the development of your application so that you can be assured that you will become a participant or gain a satisfactory CEEDA award rating if the action plans are followed.
Of course, we also offer services such as Green IT Strategy development, project management, rack-builds and special investigations. We also have strategy, marketing, project management, quality management, facilitation and coaching skills as well as web usability. We are always looking for partnership opportunities with consultants with skill sets that create synergy with our skills base and benefits for our clients.
