Sustainability is a familiar concept in the IT industry where processes are created for codes to be self-regulated to a great extent so that the entire system operation remains intact and disruption-free. When it comes to ecological sustainability, the concept of co-existence is expanded to nature and humans. The IT industry can help maintain a good balance between the two by creating hardware components that can be recycled after wear. Furthermore, rather than rely on hardware, management systems can be moved to cloud interfaces that allow for the least amount of hardware use and collective if not community usage of resources that can definitely help reduce carbon footprint.
