Green IT Factsheet

Information Technology (IT) offers many benefits including increased productivity, access to information, and convenience. However, the production, use, and disposal of computers require large amounts of energy and resources. Green IT enhances the sustainability of computing through manufacturing lower impact materials and products, reduced energy consumption of data centers and computers, and better recycling and end of life management.
