Welcome to Green IT at the University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo accepts its responsibility to create an environmentally sustainable campus community. Consequently, it strives to create a community of users of information systems and technology (IT) that is sustainable and where its members embrace principles of Green IT.

Within these pages you can learn about the initiatives we are undertaking to make the computing at the University of Waterloo more environmentally friendly, see what other groups on campus are doing, and discover how you can help.

If you have any ideas on how IT can be more environmentally-friendly on campus, or if you have questions, feel free to contact the representative from your area of campus. To take part in the discussion you can join the campus Green IT mailing list.
