Sustainable Technology & Procurement

IU’s cutting edge information technology services and infrastructure make the university a global leader

Sustainable computing practices require thoughtful consideration of these questions. Ensuring suppliers follow ecologically accepted standards of operation, practicing responsible sourcing, developing methods to educate students, staff and faculty on eco-friendly computing practices—all of these are sustainable computing.
