The trend of green computing that drives the industry nowadays is caused by the desire to reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to fossil fuel consumption. This paper provides an overview of the efforts toward green energy, and associated power consumption issues. Subsequently, sustainable practices are reviewed to position the significance of microprocessor industries in the sphere of green energy. This study provides an overview of motivation for sustainable practices for energy efficiency within an industry and inspiration for these activities. For this reason, a detailed empirical survey has been conducted on two well-known fabrication groups; Intel and IBM, to depict the practical reasons of the theoretical framework. We conclude based on our observations that external factors (pressure from stakeholder, legitimation, and competition) are more important than internal factors (values and beliefs, organization support, trademark and social relations).
