SYNGENIO AG, a leading independent consulting and software company, has received certification from TÜV Rheinland for its Green Software Design label. With this, TÜV Rheinland certifies that Syngenio’s process “Audit concept for assessing the carbon footprint of software in use” is functional. The process that Syngenio carries out to assess whether the Green Software Design label can be awarded to companies is thus a “TÜV Rheinland Tested Process”.
In order to be able to award the certificate, TÜV Rheinland audited Syngenio’s process with its certification body for quality management systems. The audit was successful for Syngenio. The auditors from TÜV Rheinland carried out exemplary processes and checked the conformity of work processes with the requirements of the standard. For this purpose, TÜV Rheinland interviewed random samples of employees from the respective areas and inspected the corresponding process documentation.
“We are very pleased that TÜV Rheinland has certified our process for determining whether software is climate-friendly,” says Stephanie Kamp, Green Innovation Manager at Syngenio AG. “When we award our Green Software Design label, it is an expression of the valuable work an organisation does in software development, helping to make applications resource-efficient from the ground up.”
Syngenio Green Software Design-Certificate
Syngenio awards the Syngenio Green Software Design label to climate-friendly software. Software is considered climate-friendly if it contributes to saving CO2 emissions and was developed according to the principles of Green Software Design (GSD). GSD is more than just green coding. It is a holistic approach with the aim of developing software in a more climate-friendly way. In the course of this, the entire life cycle of a software is included in the consideration. This includes consideration of the initial requirements of an application, avoidance of waste, efficient use of energy and the actual design. In addition, GSD also takes a look at what benefits a software fulfils – for example, if a software fulfils unneeded tasks or even contributes to an increase in CO2 emissions.
