    Also called green computing, Green IT describes the study and use of computer resources in an efficient way. Green IT starts with manufacturers producing environmentally friendly products and encouraging IT departments to consider more friendly options like virtualization, power management and proper recycling habits.

    The government has also recently proposed new compliance regulations that would work towards certifying data centers as green. Some criteria includes using low-emission building materials, recycling, using alternative energy technologies and other green technologies.
