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.

Abstract [ja]

社会のサステナビリティが世界中で叫ばれる昨今,日本においては東日本大震災を一つの契機にその意識はさらに加速している。そんな中,われわれは,そのサステナビリティを考える上で,日本企業が今後取り組むべき「グリーンIT」に着目したい。グリーンITとは,情報技術を用いたあるいは情報技術そのもののグリーン化(環境負荷の低減化)を目指す一連の取り組みのことである。北米や欧州を筆頭に世界各国でこの取り組みは進展しているものの,それに比べ日本のそれは,やや遅れ気味の感がある。そこで本報告では,日本におけるグリーンITの現状を紹介しながら,さらにそこからその重要性と課題について検討していく。
