Green Software Design- Make software sustainable
Because your hardware only does what your software defines, making your IT greener starts with the software. Green Software Design enables applications designed to specifically minimize the resources needed. In this way, you develop software that is climate-friendly or even climate-neutral from the start.
How green is your software?
Do you know how green your software really is? Our Green Software Expertyzer gives you insights.

Let's contribute together
Businesses in the Green Software Design Community are leading the way in this initiative. By actively supporting Green Software Design, they make valuable and significant contributions to Green IT.
Sustainable software is on its way to becoming the standard in software development: not only do customers, employees, and investors demand it, but also climate protection laws are getting stricter. And yet, it’s still not yet common to integrate sustainable software development as a factor in the aim for climate neutrality.
Green Software Design needs partners and supporters as leading role models. The Green Software Design Community unites partner businesses with research institutions to jointly foster and share both knowledge and practical experience. And, through this cooperation, both emphasize the relevancy of sustainabilty in software development.
Take a stand - the Green Software Design Label
Our Green Software Design Label indicates the value of climate protection. One may see at a glance that the software has been sustainably developed.
Transparency is important. That is why the label indicates software that has been developed in a climate-friendly way by using Best Practices of Green Software Design. Hence customers, young talents and absolutely everybody, will realize how important sustainable software is for our future. Therefore pay attention to the label of your apps, web applications and websites. Get your own sustainably developed and optimized software checked now! Only if you do so, will your application merit the label and be an ambassador for Green Software Design.
