Necessitate Green Environment for Sustainable Computing

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 380)


The concept of green computing is eminently applied in the field of technology in order to reduce carbon dioxide emission and to have minimal impact on environment. Practice of green computing is used in designing, manufacturing, and discarding of computers, servers, monitors, printers, other storage devices, etc. Delve into this field of technology is abiding into key areas such as energy efficient use of computers and scheming algorithms that can be implemented for efficient management of computer technologies. It has been observed that energy consumed by IT section in an organization is around 60 % of the total energy consumed. It is expected that using green computing organization will be able to create value for both customer as well as in business. This paper focuses on review of the literature on sustainable Information technology and key area of focus is realization of green computing for a safe environment.
