Key Business Drivers toward Green

Being "green" is the trend. The key business drivers for green initiatives include:

  1. Cost reduction: Increasing energy, fuel and raw material costs for infrastructure construction and operation lead enterprises to seeking opportunities in green alternatives that could achieve substantial cost reduction.
  2. Regulations and standards: Many authorities had established regulations and standards for governing environment issues. These policies in different geographies include:
    - EU EuP Directive – energy consuming products.
    - US Energy Policy Act of 2005 – battery chargers and external power supplies.
    - RoHS- restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment
  3. E-waste problems: "e-waste" is an informal name for electronic products approaching the end of their useful life. Despite that many such products can be reused, refurbished or recycled, but unfortunately the "e-waste" is still one of the fastest growing segments of the discarded stream. 
  4. Global warming: Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and the oceans. It could cause changes in rainfall patterns, wildlife and humans activities.

The emergence of these drivers calls for enterprises to have immediate demand for green networking solutions.  

Being "Green" is still a hot topic people care about. IDC (2008) claimed that green technologies would have a good year in 2009[1]. According to this article, green energy investments will be aimed at energy efficiency, and green IT tactics will reappear as "cost savings" in 2009. Gartner (2008) considers Green IT is No.1 / No.10 Strategic Technologies and trends for 2008 /2009.
