    Keywords: Carbon footprint; Green computing; Green information technology; Eco-friendly enterprise; Green scheduling.

    This study aims to make computers increasingly energy-efficient and feasible and bring novel concepts to computer technology that deal with energy. Ecofriendly information technology (IT) is expected to quickly become a fact and an authorized government structure. As a result, green IT is interested in the complete development of individuals and the community as a whole, rather than only environmental policies. The collaboration will be investigated in this area in order to maximize profitability. The significance of green computing for IT, infrastructure, enterprises, and organizations is investigated in this work.
