Green Computing is the study and practice of using computing resources efficiently. The global use of computing resources, both servers and desktops, continues to grow dramatically. There are opportunities to reduce the ecological footprint of computing through careful selection of hardware and improved computer network designs.

Actions you can take

  • Buy and use a low power desktop or a laptop computer rather a high power desktop (e.g. 300W)
  • Buy hardware from manufacturers that have a hardware recycling scheme
  • Turn your computer off when you are not using it
  • Enable hibernation or standby using the power management settings
  • Recycle your old computer equipment rather than sending it to landfill
  • Replace your CRT screen with an LCD screen
