Green Software Foundation
Thoughtworks is a founding member of The Green Software Foundation, a non-profit with the mission to create a trusted ecosystem of people, standards, tooling and best practices for building green software. Organizations with a commitment to sustainability and an interest in green software development principles can join the Foundation to help grow the field of green software engineering, contribute to standards for the industry, and work together to reduce the carbon emissions of software.
Bringing sustainability to the cloud
Building sustainability into cloud strategy can generate sizable environmental dividends as well as cost savings. Our new open source solution, Cloud Carbon Footprint, provides the visibility and tooling to measure and monitor cloud usage data, and we help identify areas and best practices to provide the highest environmental and investment returns.
Committed to decarbonization
In 2019 we joined other leading enterprises in the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a joint partnership of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and the Worldwide Fund for Nature. In line with the SBTi we are identifying the emission reductions we need to make; considering everything from travel and electricity consumption to refrigerant use in our offices.
