- Develop a series of baseline specifications for Green Software.
- Ensure that the specifications can be implemented in an interoperable fashion on the computing platforms in widespread use in both developed and developing regions.
Software Carbon Intensity (SCI) Specification
The Software Carbon Intensity (SCI) Specification defines a methodology for calculating the rate of carbon emissions for a software system. The purpose is to help users and developers make informed choices about which tools, approaches, architectures, and services they use in the future. It is a score rather than a total; lower numbers are better than higher numbers, and reaching 0 is impossible.
Creating the infrastructure, and processes to store, host, and publicly report SCI scores, and other related reporting requirements within the SCI specification.
How we work
We hold weekly meetings on Thursdays @1630 (BST) you can see the minutes of every meeting on our repo on GitHub.
To make a proposal for a change in one of our standards, start a thread on the discussions page in the Github repository of the standard.
Once the thread has gained some momentum with comments, ideas, and inputs from the rest of the group, convert it to an issue through the option on the right-hand side menu.
Once the issue has sufficient material and agreement from the group on it, create a pull request linking that issue.
Pull requests are reviews by the group and if there is consensus merged during our weekly calls.
