In recent years, the rising consumption due to the rapid population growth and the increasing use of electronic products have caused an increase in environmental issues. In this direction, businesses have redesigned their business functions to be sensitive to the environment. Green manufacturing, green marketing, green IT are concepts that emerge as a result of this redesign. In this study, the levels of knowledge of Y generation were measured in terms of green computing concepts (i.e. Energy-efficient product, Green IT, Carbon footprint, E-waste, Energy star, EPEAT certificate, TCO certificate). Another aim of this study was to determine the green computing behaviour of this generation. The data obtained from question form which created for these purposes was analyzed. Y generation had the highest awareness level for “Energy-efficient product”among the green IT concepts. In addition, the most common exhibited behaviours among fourteen attitudes related to green IT were “turning off the computer during a long break” and “turning off the computer screen when not in use”. It was observed that males preferred to reuse technologic products and to use an external drive than to print out; females exhibited more frequently some behaviours such as turning off the computer, spending less time on the computer, reusing waste paper.
