Abstract: Information Technology is like the central nervous system for business, private sectors, Government organizations and for the social infrastructure. Of course it connects all part of the world. Most of the works are computerized and automated solely depends only on IT. IT sector depends on the electricity to run all the works and at the same time high power consumption emits larger heat by the resources which are threatening and giving unsustainable climatic conditions on the globe. So there is a need to follow the best practices for Energy conservation as well as gradual awareness for bringing environmental sustainability. The best environmental practices can reduce the use of hazardous materials and maximize Energy efficiency during product’s lifetime to avoid Green House Gas Emissions and Co2. Green IT plays a vital role to improve the climate conditions on earth by “Go Green approaches” by effective design, manufacture, use and disposal of e-wastes with no or very minimal cause on the environment. Using Green IT stakeholders or organization can avoid toxic landfills by reduce and reuse equipment’s with the manufacturing of biodegradable components. Through Green IT cost savings is possible with energy efficient products through the best practices, approaches, standards and techniques like virtualization and configuring the servers by power management options and there by gaining energy from renewable natural resources, also switching to digitalization to roll out traditional paper works. In this research paper, the proposed approach is to address the power consumption and environmental issues from various ITC resources like compute, network and storage with better algorithms like ACVFS and Energy-Conscience Workload Scheduling, Resource Efficiency techniques in data centers, thin provisioning and by recycling approaches like 3R’s for managing e-wastes to make the Earth Greener for the next generation.
