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!
