An Assessment of Green Computing Awareness and Adoption in Higher Education Institutions in Zambia: A Case of ZCAS

Serah Beza Mbewe


As the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) increases in Zambia, there is a general concern about whether the use and eventual disposal of ICT hardware will have minimal impact on the environment. The grooming or modification of behavior of users for the future generation takes place in educational institutions. This paper therefore explored the level of use of ICTs in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) with regard to the awareness and adoption of green computing in these institutions. The results indicated that though there is a high level of use in the HEIs, the level of green computing awareness was simply moderate and the level of green computing adoption was low. Therefore, there is need for HEIs, the IT community and the legislative bodies to do more in introducing practices that will promote eco-friendly use and disposal of ICTs in Zambia.
