Four more green technology suggestions

These four practices, lit up by Law Tech. News, March 2009 at 39, and its profile of Gardere Wynne Sewell make sense to me. I keep composting scraps of ideas for how law departments can improve the environment (See my post of March 11, 2009: conservation steps for law departments with 7 references.).

  1. Push (and enable) people to reduce junk e-mails, and remove them from servers, which decreases server heat and electricity (See my post of Nov. 6, 2006: email with 6 references.).

  2. Move archived data to non-spinning drives. I think this might include some electronic discovery documents.

  3. Upgrade all monitors to LCDs, which reduces the amount of heat generated.

  4. Provide staff with a second LCD monitor, with the goal to “reduce the need to print, because additional monitor space displays more content” (See my post of Nov. 9, 2008: energy worries about second monitors.).
