Why green software matters?


% of global greenhouse gas emissions
Green Software Foundation Report, 2022

As data center emissions continue to soar, green software development is emerging as the next logical step for enterprises globally to make their technology more sustainable and meet emerging regulatory requirements.

Building green software delivers additional benefits including:

  • Lower cost
  • Better performance
  • Higher resilience

Overwhelming complexity makes it hard to see what software changes are needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrate continuous improvement.

Now, there is a way to automatically analyze software source code for green impact…

How do you make your software greener?

Finding and remediating green deficiencies, source code patterns that drive excessive use of resources, helps organizations reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by their custom-built applications.

For example, an application using SQL queries inside a loop consumes more CPU cycles (energy) than one where the loop logic is coded inside the query.

CAST technology automatically extracts this type of intelligence from the source code and suggests how to make it more sustainable.
