Reviews and Testimonials

This book, the Handbook of Research in Green ICT, brings together discussions from wide areas of business, technology and society with a focus on the environment and the role of ICT in that environment. This book is also a judicious combination of research, scholarly viewpoints and industrial expertise. The contributed chapters bring to the reader a sensible and pragmatic combination of how business affects the environment, the role of ICT in the overall generation of greenhouse gases and, most importantly, how ICT can be a vital weapon in the continuing battle against global warming. ... Dr. Unhelkar has done an excellent job of coordinating this work over a period of more than a year. I am honoured to recommend this Handbook of Research in Green ICT - Technical, Methodological and Social Perspective, to researchers as well as practitioners in the industry as an invaluable desktop reference. This book will help organizations with their attempts at greening their IT and related functions; it will also encourage higher degree research; and it will contribute to the overall literature in the area of environmental responsibilities of business. Above all, I am confident that application of the principles and lessons described herein will make a very real contribution to a better environmental future for all.
