New method of scoring carbon emissions to power sustainable software

Software management remains the often-forgotten piece of decarbonisation journeys, despite energy-inefficient software being a core aspect of the growing carbon footprint. It is thus more crucial than ever for these infrastructures (and their developers) to be held accountable for their impact on the environment.


Thoughtworks, having been a founding member, alongside Accenture, GitHub, and Microsoft, of the Green Software Foundation, will be well-positioned to share more on how the software industry can re-pivot its current strategies to pave the way for a more sustainable future.


This foundation has become especially pertinent in the reduction of carbon emission, with its release of the alpha version of the Software Carbon Intensity (SCI) Specification – a method for scoring software systems based on carbon emissions, specially designed such that developers can more easily account for carbon intensity throughout the entire software building process in the same way factors like cost, performance, and security are constantly being considered.
