Globant, a digitally-native company that offers innovative technology solutions has joined the Green Software Foundation, an institution of global organisations committed to, and creating best practices for building sustainable software to reduce carbon emissions.
The organisation, now comprising 14 member organisations, was formed in May 2021 and is rooted in a mutual desire and need to collaborate across industries to combat climate change. Joining the coalition from Globant will be Santiago Fontanarrosa, VP of Technology at the Sustainable Business Studio.
Fontanarrosa says: At Globant we acknowledge the impact technology has on the environment, and we share a responsibility to invest in making our products like software greener and more sustainable for ourselves and our clients.
"The Green Software Foundation is an incredible organisation that has accomplished so much in the short time since its conception earlier this year and we are honoured to join and continue working toward a greener future in tech."
Climate change fundamentally impacts our world, and Globant shares a responsibility to reduce carbon emissions. As a digitally-native company that develops software, Globant has long been committed to developing and implementing sustainable software development practices and measures. As a new member of the Green Software Foundation steering committee, Globant builds on its longstanding Be Kind initiative – a call to action that encourages a sustainable way of living that positively impacts society, the environment, the economy and the cultural good of humanity.
"Our purpose as a company has always been to positively impact and transform the world. With that in mind, our Be Kind to The Planet initiative was born and joining Green Software Foundation is a key step in this journey", added Martin Migoya, CEO and Co-Founder of Globant.
As part of its commitment, Globant is leading a number of other initiatives in the sustainability space. On the zero emissions front, the company started its Net Zero Roadmap in 2020 and moved into operating with 100% renewable electricity resources and committed to become completely carbon neutral by the end of this year.
