Abstract [en]

Green IT is steadily gaining ground among companies and organizations worldwide but the understanding of its actual significance is often indistinct. The purpose of this paper is to investigate Green Software and to summarize different points of view on Green IT and clarify some actions to be taken towards using computers more wisely. Special attention will be paid to Green Software and exploring what factors could make software being used and developed with the environmental impact in mind. A descriptive research method based on available literature has been used. Finally a test was set up to control if the amount of data sent over the Internet could be lowered during navigation by changing a server setting. The intention was to prove that Green Software can be simple use of tools we have at hand, just adding a small amount of knowledge. The result showed that there are savings to gain with no effect on overall performance. To conclude, a holistic approach towards Green IT and all it’s including parts is necessary, together with appropriate ways of measuring progress towards improvement.
