Our commitment to an energy-efficient, clean, sustainable campus

The momentum is growing for higher education institutions to make energy-efficient, or green, choices. Northwestern Information Technology (IT) has a significant role in educating, promoting and sustaining behavioral change within information technology and computing at Northwestern University.

Recycling can be for computers, too

This Northwestern IT Green Technology Commitment is an Northwestern IT initiative designed to guide efforts toward best practices in reducing energy consumption through power management, friendly disposal of e-waste, and encouraging the use of emerging communication technologies for environmental campaigns. Also included is our commitment to developing and distributing green technologies for operational optimization, such as the virtualization of servers at the enterprise level.

Our pledge is to always be searching for innovative ways of progressing toward becoming greener while continuing to deliver quality information technology services for the University.
