In this paper the authors are introducing a framework towards the inclusion of Green IT metrics as part of service level agreements for future Grids and Clouds. As part of this effort the authors need to revisit Green IT metrics and proxies that the authors consider optimizing against in order to develop GreenIT as a Services (GaaS) that can be reused as part of a Software as a Serice (SaaS) and Infrastructure Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) framework. This paper reports on some of the ongoing efforts and demonstrates how the authors already achieve impact on the environment with the services.
