Sustainable IT

January 2024. Sustainable IT (Information Technology), also called Green IT, includes the development, manufacturing, utilization, management, and disposal of Information Technology in ways that are resource-efficient and environmentally responsible. Sustainable IT benefits: (1) Cost savings: energy, water, resources, materials, and waste management (2) Enterprise social image enhancement: many customers prefer to buy from businesses with sustainable practices (3) Positive environmental impact: less emissions and waste generation maximized by the use of clean renewable energy sources. Sustainable IT challenges: (1) High initial costs (2) Lack of green software (3) Lack of coding standards (4) Lack of implementation experience (5) Difficulty in identifying optimum sustainable practices (6) High energy use and emissions during development. Sustainable IT implementation steps using Artificial intelligence (AI): (1) Reduce emissions and water consumption (2) Improve energy efficiency (3) Monitor compliance (4) Benchmark sustainability efforts (5) Improve social impact and data governance. A green data center is an enterprise-class data center that is entirely designed, run, and operated using green technologies to maximize energy efficiency and minimize the carbon footprint. Examples of green technologies include software optimization, artificial intelligence, multi-site resilience, liquid cooling, renewable energy, waste heat utilization, idle time minimization, smart grids, and efficient lighting. Policy wise, in September 2023, the SDG Digital Summit was launched with the aim of scaling digital SDG solutions through high impact initiatives. The SDG Digital Acceleration Agenda is a collaboration between the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) that highlights the importance of digital technologies in achieving 70% of the 169 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this slideshow, you will learn about the definition, benefits, challenges, green data center, green technologies, UN policy, global statistics, and market value of the sustainable IT industry.
