Formed by UITS at the request of the IU Office of Sustainability in 2009, the Sustainable IT Working Group (SITWG) is a cross-functional team of faculty, staff and students who are dedicated to improving sustainable computing practices at IU. Since its formation, SITWG has focused on utility management for computing resources, responsible management of electronic waste, print reduction initiatives and the use of technology as a vehicle for improving sustainability.
To leverage resources, skills and knowledge with the goal of lowering the environmental impact of our technological practices and effectively employ technologies to lower the environmental impact of the campus and its constituents.
- Advise the Office of Sustainability, Sustainability Advisory Board, and Office of the Vice President for Information Technology on environmental impact of technological practices. Recommend projects and priorities to achieve objective.
- Evaluate and recommend technology uses that allow the campus to meet its sustainability goals.
- Facilitate communication on sustainable computing initiatives across the University.
- Seek input from broad constituents on sustainable computing.
The first initiative that the Sustainable Computing Working Group helped roll out in 2009 was the GoGreen Gadget and Reporting Service. Since then the Working Group has worked to publicize E-Waste Recycling events and advise the University on new technologies and purchasing practices.
The working group is currently led by co-chairs Nathan Ensmenger and Noma Maier.
