Information technology has tremendously influenced the world in almost every field be it business, education, defence, medical science and many more. In the last two decades researchers and business people are more focused on how we can use Information Technology for creating various advantages for a firm. It has been seen that cost of power utilized by the Information Technology departments is approximately 50% of the overall organizations’ cost but with Green Information Technology it is expected that it should decrease the cost and its effect on the environment. The idea of Green Computing is the contemporary style that is increasing high regard. The primary theme of concern in green computing is to decrease the ecological effect of industrial processes along with the development in population bringing about imaginative advancements. Green Computing is an applicable approach that an IT department can use to add to the key and strategic corporate objectives. In this paper we have considered the impact of Information Technology on environment affecting the humans directly or indirectly. This paper also gives the background work on Green Computing and contribution of Green Information Technology to make environment more sustainable and free from hazardous materials.
