If I were an IT worker, these are the types of wins I’d be on the lookout for. Not only is this a boon to corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, it’s just more efficient. Very few companies are in the email infrastructure business, and there’s a reason for that. Stick to what your good at and look to specialists to supplement the rest.

"The study found that for large enterprises, cloud-based applications can reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with their servers, networks and storage infrastructure by 30 per cent or more. In one case, a consumer goods company cut its IT infrastructure emissions by 32 per cent by moving 50,000 email users from internal email infrastructure to Microsoft’s cloud."
