    Sustainable software development from one of the main creators of e-Estonia.

    By Helmes Kaupo Grünberg

    It is a common misconception that software solutions are sustainable by default. It is not so. The ICT industry causes approximately 5-10% of the world’s energy consumption, and it is predicted to increase to 13% by 2030.
    Non-sustainable software can easily consume 100 times more energy and create 1000 times more digital waste than sustainable software.
    Helmes, an experienced digital innovation partner, creator of more than 30% of e-Estonia digital solutions, has unique ways of building sustainable software and criteria for delivering successful business solutions.
