Microsoft is making its software greener than ever



Microsoft is joining forces with Accenture, GitHub and ThoughtWorks to create a new foundation dedicated to putting sustainability and green initiatives at the core of software engineering.

Software development has been front and center at the company’s Build 2021 developer conference. However, Microsoft and other companies have begun to wonder how the future of the software industry will affect the environment especially with global data centers accounting for one percent of the world’s electricity demand today and between three to eight percent in the next decade.
