Green IT

What is Green IT?

Green IT is more than taking single factors into account. Green IT has to be considered holistically in order to ensure added value for your company and to face the challenges in near future.

Are you aware of the Power Usage Effectiveness factor (PUE) of your IT System? Do you know how to reduce your Carbon Usage Effectiveness factor (CUE) down to zero? And what do you do beyond?

 

  • Today the ICT-sector contributes with 2 percent of overall CO2-emissions – the same amount as the aviation sector worldwide. Thus, following aspects are important to investigate regarding Green IT: 1. Setup entire life cycle of your information technology environmentally friendly and resource efficiently 2. Manage substances, which are e.g. toxic, hazardous, precious or scarce or possibly challenging to get recycled 3. Ensure energy efficiency and closing the loop of used equipment and hardware systems; including the applied power, logistic, disposal and recycling
  • Green IT thus takes care of using computing resources efficiently. It is known for its broader, economy-wide capacity for energy saving and potential to effect rapid and profound change across every facet of government, industry and consumers.
