Software shouldn’t cost the world


Why does sustainable software engineering matter?

Legislatively, socially, professionally and personally, more of us are committed to going down a few sizes in our carbon footprint–and re:cinq is committed to doing that by helping companies reduce their IT-related carbon emissions.

  • 14%

    IT’s estimated contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions by 2040

What is sustainable software engineering?

What do you see when you look across the landscape of your organisation’s software?
Is it energy-conscious, environment-aware and eco-friendly?
Or power-draining, money-wasting and resource-sapping?

On its own, software doesn’t consume energy or emit harmful discharge. The problems arise with how it’s made, how we use it and how we discontinue it–and it’s in our power to do that better.

Sustainable software engineering dives deep into software practices, architecture, hosting, hardware and resourcing that will generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions to support The Paris Agreement and Fit for 55.

About us

Who is re:cinq?

We are a group of highly-experienced technologists and professionals who have worked across industries and technologies for over 20 years.

Now we’re bringing our expertise and passion for a better world together to reduce the negative impact software is leaving on the planet.


What do we do?

No matter what kind of IT system your organisation has, we work to actually* lower the carbon emissions-almost instantly.

*through true measurement, analysis and expert engineering, our services are designed to drive real change across your systems… as opposed to ticking sustainability boxes for the sake of that next report
