Join the sustainable software movement

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!

Join KDE Eco
