Have ERP Solutions Become Greener during 2009?
If you haven’t read the blog post ERP Vendors, Are You Green Enough? that I wrote a little over a year ago, I recommend you read it first. After you’ve checked

education connection  Green Program Promotes Awareness, Education, and Sustainability (September 30, 2009) It seems that not only does “green” as a word appear more frequently on ERP vendors Web site, but also some vendors do add to their offerings to help customers become greener.
