Role of Information Technology (IT) in responsible for environmental and sustainability matters has been approaching to IT & Non-IT Executives, policy makers, practitioners and business consultant’s interests. Green IT is one of the keys to becoming a green low-carbon society. This study presents a model for assessing the level of Thailand Green IT Maturity. The study applies Korea National Information Society Agencies (NIA) Green IT Maturity Model Integration (GMMI) to assess the readiness of Green IT in Thailand government sector. This study uses this model to evaluate 55 government agencies from ministerial and departmental or equivalent level to assess the overall level of Green IT maturity among government agencies. The current status of Thailand Green IT Development in government agencies and improvement strategies are presented in this study. The overall levels of Green IT maturity among Thailand government agencies are likely to be lower. The needs for Green IT are acknowledged. Limited Green IT efforts are found but not producing substantial outcome. Structure and framework on Green IT are required for systemic management. Green IT efforts are required by adopting a variety of technology to manage eco-friendly IT resources. In order to accelerate Green IT development in Thailand, this study recommends that the government should take a leading role to promote Green IT through National Green IT initiatives including the reform of policy, strategy, regulation and promote education & training as well as provide technical assistance for accelerating Green IT development. Future study should be expand the assessing agency to national level including local government and/or private sector for further development and towards to low carbon society.
