Green Computing


The Three Publics

The three publics that define the challenges, and hopefully, the solutions of green computing are the consumers, regulatory agencies, and manufacturers. These three entities must all do their parts in order to solve the major problems caused by the making, using and disposing of computing devices. Each must cooperate in a global fashion to meet the challenge


Green Computing

Green computing goes beyond the efficient use of computer resources. It encompasses the use of efficient and non-toxic production methods; the design of devices to optimize energy use; and the design and manufacture of electronics for recyclability or biodegradability at end-of-life.


The trends in green computing are positive. Consumers are increasingly aware of the problems of energy waste and the negative impact e-waste has on the environment. Organizations like EPEAT are bringing increased awareness to consumers. This increasing awareness has resulted in a buying preference for green solutions.


In addition, regulatory agencies are making positive moves to stem a rising tide of e-waste. Electronics manufacturers are doing their part because of governmental regulations, and because it’s good business to do so. RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Subsatnces), in particular, is a bright spot because of its global adoption. Meanwhile, technology continues to yield solutions with greater energy and material efficiency. This trend shows no sign of slowing down. However, it will take diligence on all our parts to overcome a vast and complex problem.
