This panel will address the various works being developed by international governments, standards organizations, and other institutions that are focused on the environmental impact of data centers, as well as driving the IT industry towards improved sustainability. Is it possible to harmonize the regulations on a global scale? Can we move beyond the current barriers of local energy policies and legal frameworks? These and other questions will be answered as participants from North America, Europe, and Asia review the current barriers to the global harmonization of resource efficient IT initiatives.
