Bluegrass Computer Services, one of the South West’s leading IT Support providers, has achieved the prestigious Green Accord accreditation. Bluegrass is the first UK business in its sector to be awarded the Green Accord Superior Status.

By implementing new practices we can not only benefit the environment but also provide our clients with solutions that are environmentally friendly and help to reduce their business costs.”
“Achieving the accreditation reflects a lot of hard work and helps keep us ahead of our competitors. Our team is now more environmentally aware which is delivering real financial benefits with our energy use.”
An additional benefit of the Green Accord accreditation is that value it can add to the clients of Bluegrass.
Steve Triner, Head of Computer Services, said “As well as Bluegrass gaining internal benefits we can also now advise our clients on technology solutions that not only help the environment but also help them save money by the efficient use IT hardware such as PCs and servers.”
