Sustainable computing

Poiesis and Praxis 4 (3):163-184 (2006)
The term Sustainable Computing is used to transfer the political concept of sustainability to computer systems, including material components (hardware) as well as informational ones (software), development as well as consumption processes. Six dimensions of Sustainable Computing are being distinguished. Empirical discourses, initiatives and social movements within the IT industry are assigned to these dimensions. The introduced Sustainable Computing Concept serves as a classification system to better understand different discourses or debates within the IT world, partly historical, partly current. It allows to synthesize these discourses by emphasizing what they have in common: the aim to balance economic, social and ecological interests
