"Green IT" primarily refers to reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of the IT function within the organisation. With technology advancements, new server technologies pack more no of processors, hence consume more electricity. Rising energy demand with a more limited supply, increasing utility costs, management of hazardous waste and electronic equipment disposal (e-waste) fuels the Green IT movement. Nowadays IT companies consider power consumption also as a part of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of IT equipments.

As an emerging topic in IT management, “Green IT” practices are drawing high interest among IT organizations as well as suppliers, manufacturers and service providers. With the rapid run up of energy costs and a broadening awareness of the impact of global climate change, IT organizations are looking for strategies to offset rising costs and to use technology in ways that reduce their environmental impact. With the growing body of evidence demonstrating the potential return on investment (ROI) resulting from adopting Green IT approaches, leading organizations are implementing innovative solutions that reduce their utility bills and “green” their procurement practices. Server and storage virtualisation and consolidation, “Green PCs”, thin clients are the concepts that lead towards Green IT.

The research project is aimed to analyze and provide a summary of emerging Green IT concepts and overview of key areas where IT organizations can achieve savings and provide leadership in sustainable business practices.
