This book will examine the importance of Human Computer Interaction, Usability, and Sustainability, including sustainable design, in the Information Communication and Technology sector (ICT). ICT usage by businesses and individuals has become a significant instrument for searching, conducting research, communication, entertainment, commerce and information. The recycling of ICT usage is becoming a major dilemma for businesses and individuals, since it is not simply a matter of concern for environmental damage or a solution to an environmental problem. Designers, businesses, and individuals must collaborate in making a concerted effort to tackle the environmental concerns by developing new ICT technologies with sustainable design in their agenda to meet the needs of businesses and individuals both currently and in future. This book discusses sustainable design features as well as the New Participative Methodology for Sustainable Design.
