Pulsant, a leading provider of Cloud, colocation and managed hosting to businesses in the UK, has been voted “I.T. Operator of the Year” at this year’s Green I.T. awards, hosted by Green I.T. Magazine.
CTO Matt Lovell and team joined 140 guests at the awards ceremony held at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, London. The finalists for the hotly contested category were selected based on criteria including ethical management practices, commercial impact and decisiveness, and the winner was decided by a public vote open to readers of the magazine.

On a personal level, I am an elective member of the Green Grid Council, and we are committed to promoting the sustainable working practices within our power-hungry sector. I am proud that company which I work for has been recognised as a green standard bearer for the industry.”
