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 에너지 효율성 프로젝트(FEEP)

소프트웨어의 에너지 소모를 어떻게 측정할 수 있을까요? 소프트웨어별 차이는 얼마나 날까요? 우리는 자유 소프트웨어가 지속 가능하도록 개발하고 있습니다.

KDE Eco - 에너지 효율적인 자유 소프트웨어 개발

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!

KDE Eco Handbook

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!   자세한 내용 보기

What is Sustainable Software, After All?

"Sustainable Software" is a strategic goal for KDE, focusing on minimizing resource consumption and strengthening user autonomy. The aim is to create software that uses fewer natural resources, reduces energy consumption, and promotes user choice and privacy. 자세한 내용 보기

Report From The German Parliament's "Sustainable by Design" Conference

In this post I report back from the German Parliament's "Nachhaltig by Design" conference, which took place in March 2023. I realize we still have a lot to figure out to ensure we minimize the impact of software on the destruction of our planet. Nonetheless, it is encouraging to see the topic of green digitisation and sustainable software receiving more attention. 자세한 내용 보기

FEEP는 자유 오픈 소스 소프트웨어 개발 시 에너지 효율성을 개선할 수 있는 도구를 개발합니다. 소프트웨어의 설계와 구현은 해당 소프트웨어가 구동되는 시스템의 에너지 소모에 큰 영향을 줍니다. 올바른 도구를 사용하여 에너지 소모를 측정하고 감소시킬 부분을 찾을 수 있습니다. 소프트웨어의 에너지 효율성을 개선하면 우리 지구의 공유 자원인 에너지를 더 지속 가능한 형태로 사용할 수 있습니다.

Blauer Engel For FOSS(BE4FOSS)

In 2020, the German Environment Agency (German: Umweltbundesamt) released the award criteria for eco-certifying desktop software with the Blue Angel ecolabel (German: Blauer Engel). From 2021-2022, the BE4FOSS project under KDE Eco worked to advance eco-certification for resource and energy-efficient software in FOSS communities. Obtaining the Blue Angel ecolabel occurs in 3 steps: (1) Measure, (2) Analyze, and (3) Certify.

Benefits of obtaining the Blue Angel ecolabel include:

  • Recognition of reaching high standards for environmentally-friendly software design,
  • Differentiating free software from the alternatives,
  • Increasing the appeal of adoption for consumers, and
  • Promoting transparency in the ecological footprint of software.
