Welcome to the 12th IEEE International Conference on Green Computing and Communications (GreenCom 2016), Chengdu, Sichuan, China, December 16-19, 2016. As the general chairs for GreenCom 2016, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all the participants. Computer networks, communication systems, and other IT infrastructures have caused severe environmental problems by consuming significant amounts of power, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, and lead to pollution during the production and disposal. To reduce such environmental problems and create a sustainable environment, new energy models, algorithms, methodologies, platforms, tools and systems are pressing. Thus, green computing and communications solutions should be designed with more renewable energy, higher energy efficiency, lower reenhouse gas emission, and less harmful materials.
