Green IT refers to the ecological management of IT equipment in terms of:

  • Energy consumption of IT infrastructure
  • Recycling of equipment


  • Recycling information can be specified when discarding an item of equipment and for equipment with a specified discard date.
    • You can modify this information in the equipment inventory as long as the discard date has not been reached. This information is based on projections.
    • Once the item of equipment has been discarded, you can only modify its information using the specific wizard available in the Green IT menu.

    • Display the equipment inventory or Green IT menu in List mode.
