I’ve been programming for 5 years and I’ve never worked directly in a project with a clear goal like to lower our carbon footprint even if this is a question I’m asking myself everyday to improve the situation. The only thing that comes close is that I’m currently developing a web app for a French company to limit paper documents on their parts repair.

In the meantime, our domain has a footprint exceeding air travel.

So, in my case, this is obviously not enough in a larger scale. I need to do a lot more. So I was wondering what do you do in your workday to improve the climate situation? Do you work in the climate field? Is the Earth a concern in your every day business?

Finally, in general, do you think, as a developer, we can have a positive impact on this global warming?
