Advancing digitalisation and the use of computing-intensive applications such as artificial intelligence are continuously driving up the power consumption of ICT. Against this background, the energy consumption of ICT is becoming increasingly relevant for achieving energy and climate targets. This is why the issue of green software is more topical than ever. The environmentally friendly and resource-saving use of information and communication technology over its entire life cycle is the central element of Green Software.
The economical use of (computing) resources and successful applications are not mutually exclusive – on the contrary: With the right approaches and tools, both the goals of digitalisation and environmental sustainability can be achieved. When used properly, Green IT not only contributes to the climate situation, but also generates significantly positive company results.
The climate debate is increasingly confronting companies with the issue of environmental protection. Stricter requirements regarding transparency and energy savings must be expected in the future. This has implications for companies, for example, with regard to reporting requirements and compliance with energy targets.
Computing power and costs are directly related. The less energy is used for applications, the lower the energy costs.
A high energy consumption of mobile apps is directly visible to the customer and has a negative impact on the company as a result of poor reviews in the App Store. This is why energy-efficient apps are becoming more and more important.
Environmental sustainability is playing an increasingly central role for companies in connection with the climate debate. True to the motto ‘Do good and talk about it’, the activities and results of Green IT can be used specifically for public relations work and to help companies achieve a positive image.
