What is green computing?
In this information age, you can take steps to manage your computing systems in order to minimize the impact on the environment. Here are four ways to implement green computing in your office:
- Computer usage generates a great deal of paper. Minimize unnecessary waste by double-checking documents for accuracy before printing and maximizing use of correspondence via email or electronic copy rather than hard copy.
- Utilize the computer efficiently by concentrating blocks of time for use and keeping the hardware off when not in use.
- Operate Energy Star labeled equipment in the office whenever possible.
- Engage the power management features on your computers to allow the screens and hard drives to become inactive after several minutes of being idle.
