Abstract— The usage of computer in day to day affairs is a basic need of everyone. No individual or organization can work without computer in the present era. However, extravagant practice of involving computer technology demands certain degree of responsibility on the part of user to avoid or minimize associated harmful impacts that are badly affecting environment.
Information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure accounts for seemingly significant electricity usage and considered accountable for greenhouse gases (GHGs) globally. The overwhelming and improper usage of ICT is leading to continual increase in carbon foot printing and GHGs. Green computing is emerging as a prompting solution to this crisis. Foremost measure in this regard is to develop computing technology that cut down usage of power input thus may leads to significant reduction in CO2 emission. Various proposed measures taken in this regard can be considered as effective approach to protect our environment from the hazardous material and its effects specially computers and related devices. We also highlighted computing related distresses, possible steps for its minimization through Green computing. The article also covers prospective measures ought to be taken to reduce the associated harmful impacts on our environment thereby protect planet from any future disaster.
Keywords— Green computing, ICT, GHGs.
