HCL Technologies' suite of Green Datacenter Services will help enterprise IT organizations reduce their companies' environmental impact through assessing, planning, and implementing green initiatives around their DC environment. A key highlight of this offering is HCL's Green Datacenter Assessment Framework, which helps enterprises find out the environment friendly status of their datacenters.

In this event HCL will also be addressing CIO's and IT end-users on how they can realize their Green DC agenda at a session titled "Paint Your Datacenter Green – 5 steps to a green Datacenter". The company will be showcasing its Green Datacenter Services at Stall No. P-24.

Commenting on this theme, Anubhav Saxena, Associate Vice President – Business Development and Customer Advocacy, HCLT ISD said, "Datacenter is the heart and headquarter of all IT activity and hence from the perspective of sustainable IT, achieving energy efficiencies within the data centre is key to a successful green IT policy. We at HCL recognize this enterprise imperative and have therefore built a unique suite of services which offer 360 degree solutions for Data center greening and seek to provide cost savings to the tune of 20-30% in DC operations. We are privileged to have given the opportunity to display our capabilities at an esteemed event such as this."

HCL, in alliance with Tata Energy Research Institute (2007 Nobel Prize winner), is also an active member of ICSD (India Council for Sustainable Development), a non-government organization working towards the ultimate "Green Goal" of Government of India by participating in various sustainable development projects at various levels.

HCL also has a strong eco-system of partners who further enhance its 'green' services, like its VMware Global System Integration partnership with VMware.
