Green computing is the environmentally responsible and eco-friendly use of computers and their resources. In broader terms, it is also defined as the study of designing, manufacturing/engineering, using and disposing of computing devices in a way that reduces their environmental impact.
reduced environmental impact (less GHG emissions, less e-waste, fewer virgin resources needed for manufacturing new devices)
lower energy costs.
longer lasting computing devices.
reduced health risk for computer workers and recyclers.
