BTW please stop my regular ZDNet haunt – this week I blogged about IBM’s new sustainability survey results, the outcome of the World Business Summit on Climate Change and I gave a retort to Jack & Suzy Welch’s missive on CSR in Business Week. Also do check out the Greenpeace Cool IT post — it attracted a huge amount of comments in the ‘talk back’ section which are worth reading in their own right.
