The growing concern on environment sustainability, increasing fuel prices and climate change have galvanised business and government organisations to incorporate the Green concepts in all areas. Green IT is an emerging research area in Information Technology field. As IT infrastructure is growing rapidly in Sri Lanka, it is evident that Sri Lanka too would face major issues with energy prices and e-waste. Increasing energy cost is already a major concern in business organisations in Sri Lankan. Thus, study on Green IT adoption in Sri Lanka is an area of interest to academics as well as business organisations. Hence, in this research, influential factors of Green IT adoption in data centres of Sri Lankan banks were studied. To achieve the objective a conceptual model based on literature was developed and four banks were selected for data collection. The results show that there is a high positive relationship between Green IT adoption and technological factors, organizational factors and the external pressure.
