Abstract

The climate change catastrophe, global warming, and environmental sustainability are some of the major challenges our globe is facing today. There is an urgent requirement of the global rules and policies to ensure environment sustainability. The Green IT is a genuine effort initiated from computer science world toward sustained environment. It is a worldwide rung which lays the foundations for the proficient use of computers and other similar computing resources so as to produce minimal carbon emissions. Because of its direct impact on environment, Green IT has also emerged as a research topic of prime importance. In this paper, we have studied and quantified these varied impacts. As well as we have proposed an action plan to diminish these awful impacts by changing the designs and development strategies of various silicon valley products. The stated action plan has also been verified on a sample test case study in this manuscript.
