NC State’s Green House Gas (GHG) Inventory reports that 53 percent of NC State’s GHG emissions come from the use of electricity. An estimated 15 percent of that use may be related to information and communication technologies (ICT), and more than 40 percent of ICT energy use is said to come from personal computing.
“Green IT” involves:
- Computing in an environmentally sustainable way
- Reducing the GHG emissions and e-waste produced by ICT
- Using ICT to help reduce overall GHG emissions and other environmental impacts
By employing Green IT practices, OIT is working to help NC State reduce its “carbon pawprint” and advance sustainability. You can too!
