Reflecting the open source spirit, Thoughtworks and cloud data platform provider Aiven share the results of their collaboration

HELSINKI, Finland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thoughtworks (NASDAQ: TWKS), a global technology consultancy that integrates strategy, design and engineering, and the Finnish open source data platform company Aiven are tackling the challenge of lowering the CO2 emissions of the IT industry. Together, they conducted an internal sustainability assessment for Aiven and are helping Aiven customers manage their environmental impact, all in strong support of open-source.

For many companies, as well as their suppliers, the transparent use of resources is no longer just a voluntary commitment. For example, the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) stipulates the disclosure of sustainability indicators. Aiven collaborated with Thoughtworks to fulfill this transparency obligation as efficiently as possible by helping its customers to visualize and manage their cloud emissions. As a founding member of the non-profit Green Software Foundation, Thoughtworks brings deep expertise in building robust ecosystems for sustainable software development. One important achievement was developing the open source solution Cloud Carbon Footprint, a tool Thoughtworks designed to calculate CO2 emissions.

Heikki Nousiainen, Co-Founder and CTO at Aiven, said: “Being able to act at speed and utilize the power of our own data are prerequisites for our customers’ success. We are able to provide them with the tools to do this sustainably with our partner Thoughtworks. Open source code enables developers around the world to continuously optimize and further develop existing solutions.”

Thoughtworks utilized the expertise gained to validate Aiven’s approach for measuring and calculating the emissions of cloud assets. Based on this assessment, the technology consultancy then provided recommendations for further development. This included identifying opportunities to fine tune Aiven’s approach with those of major cloud providers like Microsoft (NASDAQ:) Azure, Amazon (NASDAQ:) Web Services, and Google (NASDAQ:) Cloud Platform. Together, they worked out the definitions of methods and parameters for calculating emissions. In cooperation with Aiven, Thoughtworks laid the foundation for the company and its customers to achieve their strategic climate targets.

Driven by their shared commitment to open source principles, both Aiven and Thoughtworks…
