Meridian Energy achieves sustainability ranking

The ranking, which has been awarded by Fujitsu following an assessment conducted in August 2013, places Meridian among the likes of Disney and McGraw –Hill Publishing.

Meridian Energy has been ranked among the top six per cent of companies worldwide in Fujitsu’s Global ICT Sustainability Benchmark, with a score of 81.1.

The ranking, which has been awarded by Fujitsu following an assessment conducted in August 2013, places Meridian among the likes of Disney and McGraw –Hill Publishing. Meridian had engaged Fujitsu A/NZ sustainability consultants to measure its ICT sustainability, and to develop an improvement plan that would place it in line with global best practice.

Glen McLatchie, Meridian’s GM of ICT, “As ICT is traditionally a heavy user of energy, we needed to ensure that we were adopting best practices in this area. Fujitsu assisted us in determining how we were positioned and what we needed to do to be one of the best in our field worldwide.

Carolyn Algar, Meridian’s ICT business solutions manager, said, “After facilitating a one-day workshop, Fujitsu helped us to define a suitable pathway that consisted of eight key initiatives, with the main focus of integrating sustainability into everyday practices and developing an ICT sustainability guideline.

“It was important that we got the whole company behind the project, so we set up a working group that met on a regular basis to monitor progress towards our goals. We also built the objective of achieving worldwide best practice in ICT sustainability into personal KPIs across the organisation.”

Jo Healey, MD of Fujitsu NZ, said: “Meridian has been a key customer and partner for Fujitsu for a number of years. It is extremely encouraging that as an organisation we can bring our global sustainability experience and expertise to NZ to benefit our local customers.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
