Abstract

Green IT is a resource efficient and effective consumption through the use of information technology with minimal or no impact to the environment. This study is an initial attempt to explore on the Green IT perspective of higher education students in the Philippines. A survey questionnaire was deployed to determine the students' awareness and practices towards Green IT. The results suggest that students have an average level of awareness and unsatisfactory practices in Green IT. The results indicate the need to integrate Green IT in higher education curriculum to raise awareness among students and engage them in sustainable use of computing resources. Practical and research implications are discussed.
