Green tech vs Green com[

  1. 1. By Omar Soria<br />green computing Vs. green technology <br />
  2. 2. refers to environmentally sustainable computing or IT. <br />It is &quot;the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems Ex:<br />monitors, printers, storage devices, and networking and communications systems<br />Green Computing<br />
  3. 3. With increasing recognition that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are a major contributing factor to global warming, enterprises, governments, and society at large now have an important new agenda: tackling environmental issues and adopting environmentally sound practices. <br />Greening our IT products, applications, services, and practices is both an economic and an environmental imperative, as well as our social responsibility.<br />Green computing cont.<br />
  4. 4. Therefore, a growing number of IT vendors and users are moving toward green IT and thereby assisting in building a green society and economy.<br />The goals of green computing are similar to green chemistry; reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product&apos;s lifetime, and promote recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste.<br />Goals of green computing<br />
  5. 5. Many governmental agencies have continued to implement standards and regulations that encourage green computing such as energy star and the European union directives <br />In the Us there are 26 recycling state wide for obsolete computers and consumer electronic devices<br />Government involvement<br />

  7. 7. Green technology has many goals a few are source reduction which reducing waste and pollution by changing patterns of production and consumption<br />Green buildings that encompasses everything from the choice of building materials to where a building is located.<br />Green technology goals<br />
  8. 8. THIS FIELD RECIEVES A LOT OF Criticism DUE TO ITS CONCEPT OF ENVIROMENTAL TECHNOLOGY <br />From there view point they see it as a system rather than a tool.<br />Green technology is rejected as an attempt to reform this exploitative system, merely changing it on the surface to make it seem environmentally friendly, despite continued unsustainable levels of human and natural exploitation<br />Criticism Of green technology<br />
