Is there already a project started make exchange 2016 more environmental friendly as in make it consume less resources.

I know microsoft is investing in green datacenters in Europe, but that is a bit useless if your wasting resources with your software applications.

Eg. this diagnostig logging that is on by default
Eg. updates that contain alwayse >100MB's or even >GB's.
