The tremendous explorations in Information Technologies and the range of new equipment being developed every passing day, 21st century can aptly be labelled as the âCentury of Gadgets and Gizmosâ. The term Green Computing refers to the practice of using energy wisely and efficiently, causing negligible degradation to environmental resources and parameters also maintaining feasibility on the other hand. It is basically a balanced and sustainable approach towards the achievement of a healthy and clean environment without compromising the needs and necessities of technology for the present generation. Thus taking up a more holistic and careful approach to making our IT-industry greener definitely falls in our list of responsibilities in creating a more healthier, safer and clean environment. This also revolves on spreading awareness and ensuring people to take their necessary individual steps towards achieving the goals of Green Computing. In the present paper the authors have made a systematic study of several strategies, approaches and practices of green and energy efficient computing, in context to the growth and impact of the IT industry on environment in the recent years. The plans towards a greener IT-industry should include new electronic products and services with optimum efficiency and all possible options solutions towards energy savings.
