Standards Working Group


  • Develop a series of baseline specifications for Green Software.
  • Ensure that the specifications can be implemented in an interoperable fashion on the computing platforms in widespread use in both developed and developing regions.

How we work

  • We hold weekly meetings on Thursdays @1630 (BST) you can see the minutes of every meeting on our repo on GitHub.
  • To make a proposal for a change in one of our standards, start a thread on the discussions page in the Github repository of the standard.
  • Once the thread has gained some momentum with comments, ideas, and inputs from the rest of the group, convert it to an issue through the option on the right-hand side menu.
  • Once the issue has sufficient material and agreement from the group on it, create a pull request linking that issue.
  • Pull requests are reviews by the group and if there is consensus merged during our weekly calls.



  • For members: Our main form of communication is email via
  • For non-members: The best method of communication is to open a GitHub issue in this repository.
