Greening the Digital Frontier: A Sustainable Approach to Software Solutions

Srividhya Chandrasekaran [3] | Sriram Pollachi Subburaman

Abstract: In the 21st century, Sustainable Software Engineering practices have emerged as a pivotal process, transforming the landscape of traditional software engineering. In previous eras the focus was primarily on hardware and software development, and sustainability was often overlooked. Little attention was given to the technical, economic, environmental, social, and individual dimensions of sustainability. As software continues to play a crucial role in various aspects of our lives, contemporary software development practices have yielded significant negative impacts on the economy, society, humans, and the environment. To address these challenges, the concept of Climate Conscious Software Engineering has gained prominence. The shift towards green and sustainable software development seeks to create software that not only caters to the present and future needs of users but also minimizes adverse effects on the environment and society. This paradigm is increasingly influencing Global Software Engineering (GSE) practices. This paper delves into the foundational principles of Sustainable Software Engineering as defined by the Green Software Engineering foundation. It explores the issues and challenges in climate conscious software engineering and suggests a few recommendations based on reference studies.
