Organizations are making a concerted effort to buy information technology (IT) products that are power consumption friendly and easy to dispose of, according to new research released this week by CompTIA, the Downers Grove, Ill.-based non-profit association for the IT industry.

More than three-quarters of organizations surveyed for CompTIA's Second Annual Green IT and Insights study said they factor green into their IT purchase considerations for products such as desktop and laptop computers, printers, monitors, servers, data storage and other networking equipment.

Other highly rated green factors impacting purchase decisions include a product's power management capabilities (63 percent) and ease of disposal/recycling (58 percent).
