7c Sustainable IT online Course: Reducing Carbon Footprint and Materials Waste in the IT Environment, Stasinopoulos, P., Hargroves, K., Smith, M., Desha, C. and Hargroves, S. (2008) The Natural Edge Project (TNEP), Australia

Sustainable  IT, also known as Green IT, is a multi-component approach to establishing and sustainably                                 operating an IT business function. Sustainable IT is becoming increasingly important in the eyes of many organisations. A survey of organisations of all sizes across both the government and corporate sectors found that 80 percent of IT decision makers believe that  implementing Sustainable IT in their organisations is important and 49 percent cite positive reputation as one of the greatest benefits. However, 51 percent of IT decision makers cite cost as a barrier to implementing Sustainable IT technologies, 25 percent cite complexity of implementation and maintenance, and 21 percent cite potential disruptions to current IT systems.

 This Lectures Series offers a solution that addresses many barriers to Sustainable IT while optimising costs and minimising negative environmental impact. The focus is on the product and service provision components of Sustainable IT.
