KDE’s Sustainable Software Goal

Software has a direct affect on energy and resource consumption. Since 2022, KDE has the goal of providing software which does this in a way that reduces software’s environmental impact for us and future generations.

FOSS Energy Efficiency Project (FEEP)

How can you measure software’s energy consumption? And does it make a difference? We are working to make free software more sustainable.

KDE Eco - Building Energy-Efficient Free Software

Software has a direct affect on energy and resource consumption. KDE has the goal of providing software which does this in a way that reduces software's environmental impact.

Let’s make energy efficient software and digital sustainability part of our community. We can live up to our responsibility for this and future generations!

Příručka ke KDE Eco

The handbook "Applying The Blue Angel Criteria To Free Software" gives an overview of the environmental harm driven by software and how the Blue Angel ecolabel — the official environmental label of the German government — provides a benchmark for sustainable software design. Learn how Free Software's values of transparency and user autonomy foster sustainability, as well as how to set up a dedicated lab to measure your software's energy consumption!   Více informací

FEEP is developing tools to improve energy efficiency in Free & Open Source Software development. Design and implementation of software has a significant impact on the energy consumption of the systems it is part of. With the right tools, it is possible to quantify and drive down energy consumption. This increased efficiency contributes to a more sustainable use of energy as one of the shared resources of our planet.
