In recent years, the growth of global information and communications technologies (ICTs) and sustainable development models are potentially prepared to identify and put into action the good practices of a green governance strategy. However, the government faces many challenges, such as the establishment of green governance in industries and enterprises. In addition, the trade-off between energy efficiency and performance is becoming the biggest challenge in distributed and traditional performance-oriented industrial infrastructures.
The dual approach taken by Green ICT with respect to environmental issues is to addresses the problem with resources and energies consumption, as well as enabling changes in the operation of the government to provide services. This helps to achieve improvements in both industrial efficiency and green governance on a much wider and large scale. This Special Issue aims to disseminate the current research and developments in the field of green ICT, introducing the convergence of electronic services with network infrastructure, industrial IoT, mobile devices, wireless sensor networks, and other green technologies for the development of a sustainable ecosystem by integrating green ICT and industry into green governance.
