Green ICT is a global imperative that must be pursued with urgency. Everyone involved in information and telecommunications technology – including cloud computing – must take it into account in their work going forward. The concept recognises the limits of our historic focus on performance and how today’s trends, if they continue, will rapidly become unsustainable. We have no choice but to rethink how we modify and interact with existing systems and how we design new systems if ICT is to continue to serve our increasingly digitised society. We will need exponentially greater energy efficient advancements in nearly every aspect of ICT.
