They are already influencing companies and governments, who are changing at astonishing speed. Just 3 years ago it was hard to find a national leader who was talking about climate change. No it is hard to find one that does not. That’s today. Expect more tomorrow. So how can CIOs, software and hardware integrators, system analysts and others help turn Green into Gold?
