This chapter reports on a study that aims to design the conceptual model of a Cloud-Based Green Information Service. It is noted that Green ICT can play a key role in saving the environment. It is also noted that Cloud computing facilitates the development of an economically and environmentally sustainable model for Green Information Services. However, such a model should have different layers, and some specific research and development activities are to be undertaken for each layer of the Cloud Information Service architecture.
