Many industries are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and implement energy-efficient practices, and now eco design is coming to software companies as well. Greenspector is focusing on environmentally friendly coding with sustainable software solutions. Although data and coding might not seem like an obvious area for sustainability, these fields are still energy-intensive.

The platform "makes easier the everlasting quest of resources efficiency," specifically when it comes to saving energy on mobile devices, poorly designed IoT apps and other back-office software. The eco design company outlined a set of green rules for "energy-oriented code analysis" and utilizes cross-platform measurements and a test bench. The program can be easily integrated into existing environments as well.
