Greening IT – How Greening IT Can Form a Solid Foundation For a Low-Carbon Society

The book ‘Greening IT – How Greener IT Can Form a Solid Foundation For a Low-Carbon Society‘ was officially released on Monday 7 June 2010.

It is available to download free or can be purchased through a number of online retailers.

This book has had contributions from a number of high-profile international representatives, including European Commissioner for Climate Action Connie Hedegaard who wrote the foreword.

It is an internationally collaborative, creative commons licensed, non-profit project which was initiated by Adrian Sobotta, Irene Sobotta and John Gøtze.

It covers a number of topics on Green IT such as cloud computing, thin clients, Green ICT strategy, smart grids,  etc., and is definitely a must read.

Taken from the book….

The aim of the book is to look into how Information Technology can support society in reducing CO2 emissions, saving energy and optimising resource utilisation – thus becoming greener and developing towards a low-carbon society”.

Adrian Sobotta writes…

It is clear that the messages in the book put a lot of faith into technologies. Yet, technologies will not stand alone in this immense task that lies before us. Technology will take us only so far. Changing human behaviour and consumption patterns is the only real solution in the longer-term perspective”.

The theory is there but it is behavioural changes which need to be dealt with to ensure these are incorporated practically.

When any change is brought into an organisation, there needs to be an understanding of why it is needed, how it affects people and what people can do both individually and collaboratively to ensure it is successful.

Well done to the team who have been instrumental in contributing and for helping to raise awareness of Green IT worldwide. The contributors (listed below) are situated in:
