Singapore, Microsoft tie up towards SEA’s Innovation Digital Sustainability Hub
It is expected to drive the development of green software technologies.
Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has partnered with Microsoft in line with Singapore’s bid to be the leading Innovation Digital Sustainability Hub in Southeast Asia.
“Singapore is well-placed to lead in the digital sustainability space in Southeast Asia,” Kiren Kumar, Deputy Chief Executive, Singapore’s IMDA, said.
“This partnership will result in innovative digital sustainability solutions that can be applied to global businesses which will provide positive change to our global environment and create a sustainable future for all.”
Through the partnership, IMDA and Microsoft are expected to share learnings, certification pathways, best practices, and standards for the reporting of carbon emissions from software applications.
The two will also work on developing a joint framework, outlining the guidelines for the development of sustainable software. This will be applied through the Singapore GreenTech Challenge.
