Many businesses and institutions are taking active measures to help achieve carbon neutrality. However, we have a lot of work to do in software and systems engineering. The industry is increasingly working with huge data volumes, which make the sustainability of our technology choices all the more important for the overall picture. As a "horizontal" function that addresses the whole software lifecycle, SRE is well positioned in many organisations to bring the necessary people together to examine and act on making infrastructure more sustainable.
