Abstract [en]

Today, in a situation where global requirements of sustainability are high, and where sustainability and energy use has received renewed interest because of the Great East Japan Earthquake, we address one of the sustainability efforts that Japanese companies are making - namely Green IT. Basically, Green IT means both to reduce environmental impact by using IT, and to reduce the environmental impact of IT as such. In the U.S. and Europe, Green IT is gaining speed, but might it be the case that Japan is lagging behind? In this presentation, we present the current state of Green IT in Japan and situate it in a global context. We also discuss its importance for the future.
