ABSTRACT
Pervasive computing naturally lends itself to many of environmental sustainability's core challenges. Environmental sustainability involves efforts such as monitoring the state of the physical world; managing the direct and indirect impacts of large-scale human enterprises such as agriculture, transport, and manufacturing; and informing individuals' personal choices in consumption and behavior. These needs are well-aligned with pervasive computing's vision, which promises to deliver computational intelligence embedded in the physical world, human enterprises, and people's lives.
