The Enterprise Conscious Code Initiative unveiled by Deloitte India

Deloitte India unveiled the groundbreaking Enterprise Conscious Code (ECC) initiative during the World Economic Forum in Davos. This is aimed at sustainable and responsible software development. ECC addresses the triple bottom line—people, planet, and profits—by presenting innovative approaches to constructing environmentally friendly software. Currently, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector contributes 3% of global carbon emissions, approximately 1.58 billion metric tonnes annually. ECC has the potential to curtail up to 30% of emissions related solely to software, resulting in significant energy and cost savings. On the people front, ECC emphasises inclusive software development, accommodating diverse abilities, and enhancing usability for individuals with challenges such as astigmatism and colour blindness.

The technology ecosystem carbon footprint will be measured using automated tools and frameworks, offering insights, green health scores, and accessibility scores. Emissions from core software are often unnoticed contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. A Deloitte India analysis of popular Indian websites revealed significant emissions equivalent to a petrol car covering 10km per user.

ECC advocates for efficient compression techniques to drastically reduce storage costs on-premise or in the cloud, showcasing an over 80% lossless reduction in file size.
