EC looks at financial software's sustainable future

BASDA talks with the European Commission over the software industry's role in energy efficiency in the future

The trade body for business software is to represent the industry at a
meeting with the European Commission on the future of energy efficiency.

The information and communication event on energy efficiency takes place in
Brussels, where technology companies from all over Europe will gather to discuss
best practice ideas and offer recommendations to the industry.

Jairo Rojas, BASDA director general, said: ‘It is clear to me that green
issues and the drive to sustainability will affect all business practices as the
world changes and the business software industry has a responsibility, as well
as the ability and opportunity, to make a real difference.’

Peter Robertshaw, who chairs the BASDA green special interest group, will be
running a session at the event on gathering information and creating awareness.

BASDA initiated the green charter last year, a set of standards and
measurements software vendors must adhere to, which companies such as Microsoft,
Sage, Oracle, Coda, Access Accounting and COA solutions, among others, have
signed up to.

The green charter is supported by the European Software Association and
AFDEL, the French software association.
