Join the sustainable software movement
KDE supports the FEEP and BE4FOSS programs to help free and open source communities produce more environmentally friendly software. The projects provide communities with guidelines and support to optimize software to be more energy efficient and have a longer life-span.
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!
The BE4FOSS Project was funded by the Federal Environment Agency and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV1). The funds are made available by resolution of the German Bundestag.
