Learning from the Korean Green IT Strategy

Many countries have created initiatives to pursue green IT, especially Asian nations such as the Republic of Korea and Japan. The Republic of Korea in particular has been active in this area and has developed a comprehensive set of policies designed to transform the nation into a lowcarbon economy and society. The Korean strategy addresses how to make the IT sector more energy efficient, how to use IT to transform society and how to pursue “green jobs”.
