The commitment to reduce environmental impact and power consumption are becoming increasingly
important objectives for IT organizations. UAEU emphasized the importance of Green
computing by adapting sustainable aspects of Green IT that have a huge impact on the
environment. As computing becomes increasingly pervasive for United Arab Emirates
University, the energy consumption attributable to computing is climbing every second.
The Division Of Information Technology (DoIT) is continuously developing ways to reduce
the environmental impact of our IT use. We are committed to a more sustainable way
of working and as a result over the past years there has been significant improvement
into the UAEU Green IT environment. DoIT has implemented several Green Initiatives
and is working towards an objective whereby the initiatives become widely used practices
on all of our campuses. There are many new Green beginnings that DoIT is aspiring
to introduce on campus. We are committed to reducing the carbon footprint for IT through
the promotion of sensible and practical changes to the way we all work. By working
together we can help reduce the impact on the environment. Some of the implemented
and future initiatives are described in following sections.
