The annual GCI Green Computing Awards (GCA2022) in Malaysia recognize the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by the public and private sector. With sustainability moving up the agenda, the Awards have become established as the most prestigious recognition of best practice within the green computing arena. This year in 2022, the spotlight is on an array of Green ICT infrastructure encompassing data centers, equipment manufacturers, service providers, application developers and others.

In Malaysia, the GCA2022 is administered by GCI, and the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) with support from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) and is governed by a local cross sector steering group.
