Scrumconnect's journey towards Net Zero: pioneering sustainability with solar energy and green coding

Scrumconnect's journey towards Net Zero: pioneering sustainability with solar energy and green coding


In the age of environmental consciousness, Scrumconnect Consulting proudly embraces its role as an environmental steward. Our unwavering commitment to sustainability manifests in our latest endeavour to achieve net-zero carbon emissions. We are excited to announce our investment in a 16MW solar farm and our dedication to green coding practices, both of which symbolise our dedication to environmental responsibility.

A significant step with solar energy and green coding

The 16MW solar farm is a cornerstone of our environmental strategy, equivalent to powering an entire UK town for a month or 5,500 homes annually. This substantial investment demonstrates our commitment to renewable energy and our drive towards a greener future. Harnessing the power of solar energy is not just about reducing our carbon footprint; it's about setting an example for the industry and inspiring others to adopt sustainable practices.

Concurrently, we are embracing green coding, a software development practice that aims to minimise the environmental impact of software. By writing code that is efficient in resource usage, we can reduce energy consumption and emissions associated with software development and usage. This aligns with our commitment to environmental stewardship and contributes to a more sustainable IT industry.

Holistic approach to sustainability: green coding

Our green coding initiatives encompass various aspects:

  • Optimised data usage: We employ efficient data structures, compress data and cache frequently accessed data to minimise data consumption, reducing energy usage during data transfer, storage, and processing.
  • Resource-efficient algorithms: We choose computationally efficient algorithms, avoiding unnecessary calculations, ensuring optimal resource utilisation and minimising energy consumption.
  • Lean code practices: We promote lean code practices, removing redundant code and eliminating unnecessary functions, reducing the overall size of the codebase, and minimising energy consumption during runtime.
  • Resource-conscious libraries: We adopt resource-efficient libraries and frameworks that are optimised for performance and resource usage, ensuring minimal energy consumption during application execution.
  • Deployment optimisation: We optimise code for deployment by minimising the package size and avoiding unnecessary dependencies. This ensures efficient deployment and reduces energy consumption during deployment processes.
  • Energy consumption monitoring: We continuously monitor and measure the energy consumption of our software across development and production environments. This data-driven approach enables us to identify areas for improvement and track the impact of green coding practices.
  • Developer education: We prioritise developer training and education on green coding principles and best practices. This ensures that green coding is integrated into the development process from the early stages, fostering a culture of environmental consciousness among our developers.

Impact and vision for the future

Our green coding initiatives, coupled with our investment in solar energy, contribute significantly to beyond our net zero and reducing the planet's carbon footprint and promoting environmental sustainability. We envision a future where software development practices are inherently eco-conscious, minimising energy consumption and emissions while ensuring optimal performance and functionality.

Collaboration for a greener tomorrow

We believe in the collective power of collaboration to achieve a greener tomorrow. We actively participate in industry initiatives, share knowledge and resources with like-minded organisations, and work towards establishing industry standards for sustainable software development practices. Together, we can amplify our impact and pave the way for a more environmentally responsible IT industry.


Scrumconnect is committed to leading the way in sustainable IT practices. Our investment in solar energy, our embrace of green coding, and our commitment to educating developers are just a few steps in our journey towards a net-zero future. We invite you to join us in this endeavour to create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly IT industry, leaving a positive legacy for future generations.
