Dealing with global warming is a new management issue for the Asian nations. Twenty-first century business management and business strategy must engage directly with environmental issues, as is now internationally reorganized.
Particularly when it comes to manufacturing electronic and electrical equipment, while IT advances have enabled remarkable progress in energy control management and factory automation, more attention needs to be paid to ensuring eco-friendliness. Another area requiring an urgent response is the ongoing rise in power consumption that has inevitably accompanied the greater use of IT and other electrical devices by increasingly information-based societies.
Holding the Green IT International Symposium at the Foundation for Asian Management Development (FAMD) will offer an opportunity to communicate the importance and utility of green IT in addressing this increasingly serious hike in power consumption, and contribute to business management as an international effort launched from Asia.
