Computers and the Environment Working Group
The mission of the CPSR Working Group on Computing and the Environment is to promote awareness and action concerning the relationship between computing and our natural environment. This interest includes the impact on the environment of the use, manufacture, and disposal of computers and the application of computing technology in support of environmental research, education, policy, and social action. The Group will seek to raise awareness about computing and the environment by fostering discussion and sharing information on these topics among academia, industry, government, and the public through electronic forums, conferences, and other appropriate means. The Group will help to support public action by providing information and technical support to interested individuals and organizations. The Group will also work closely with other organizations having similar missions.
