Linda Scott, a Zühlke director based in Edinburgh, said: “Zühlke has a long track record of delivering efficiently and sustainably for clients, but now through our partnership with GoCodeGreen, we can show by how much. Sustainability in ICT is a real hot topic and we have a responsibility to do our part to reduce the impact of technology.”
