This Specialist Group is particularly relevant to end users of computing equipment, SMEs, academics, teachers and all those interested in promoting the sustainable use of computing (eg to reduce the use of power and its associated Carbon emissions and the use of non-sustainable sources for materials used in manufacture), as well as to the wider public.
Its aim is to promote green computing and address green issues and the adoption of green practices for Information and Communication technologies and services across their lifecycle, particularly for end users and home users.
