Every electronic device has an impact on the environment, and computing devices are not an exception. Green computing is a highly motivated smart computing which tries to save energy and environment by minimizing harmful impacts of computing resource's production and their uses. As the 21st Century is known for Information Technology Revolution, major negative impact of computing resources on environment are day by days increasing contribution to carbon dioxide emission, hazardous substances, e-Waste and high consumption of energy. Nowadays Global Warming is a big issue which is responsible for climate changes. And according to many available facts computing resources are highly affecting it directly and indirectly. So the world's moral duties motivate it to save earth and environment from these harmful impacts, whose outcome is Green Computing. This paper focus on classification of various existing approaches which are used for Green Computing. This classification enhances researcher's concentration on particular classified category for their future contribution so that Green Computing's main aims can be fulfilled.
