By 2040 the communications technology sector it is expected to account for 14% of the world’s
carbon footprint — up from about 1.5% in 2007, and in 2019, researchers at the University of
Cambridge estimated that the energy needed to maintain the Bitcoin network surpassed that of
the entire nation of Switzerland. Clearly this cannot continue and software needs to be

parameters. On top of the software itself, is the IT infrastructure and data center facilities that
can make a huge difference on the ecological impact of software workloads. This panel will look
at best practices and new technology directions that can change the current and dangerous
ecological impact curve implied by the digitization of society.
