How do we make IT more sustainable?

IT is no longer the forgotten sustainability issue. More and more organizations are understanding the value of setting sustainability requirements for IT products and preventing used products from becoming unnecessary electronic waste, as well as realizing that IT must contribute to the organization's overall sustainability agenda, but don’t know how to proceed.
