Green code to measure eco impact

Software developers are to be urged to integrate environmental metrics into their technologies

BASDA, the software
industry body, has created a discussion group to draw together ideas to address
the issue of measuring environmental impacts. The group aims to develop a green
‘code of conduct.’

The Green ‘Special Interest Group’, will meet for the first time after
BASDA’s annual general meeting on 15 May. It is an open forum and all are
welcome.

The group will consist of officials from BASDA, with John Doyle, sustainable
development policy coordinator at the European Commission a keynote speaker. The
agenda includes setting standards, targets, rules and measurements to tackle
carbon emissions.

Although the SIG is still in the early stages, BASDA has been speaking to
Defra about the issues.

‘We want to create the technology and software to measure, account for and to
budget carbon emissions,’ said Jairo Rojas, director general at BASDA.
