Taking Care of Our Planet

SUSE is committed to climate action, setting science-based emission targets, and developing roadmaps to execute and deliver these targets.

We are also encouraging all our business partners to share in our mission. 

Green Operations

  • SUSE is reducing greenhouse gas emissions by choosing lower-emission equipment, cars and travel. We also aim to source the most energy-efficient resources in our offices. 

  • SUSE tries to consume as little energy as possible and source renewable energy wherever we can. We manage our energy efficiency on a regional basis, working with our landlords to review all options available. 

Green Products & Solutions

  • SUSE drives product energy efficiency through Green IT performance objectives. 

  • The openSUSE project and other Linux adopters also benefit because our technology (as open source software) is available to everyone and is made available upstream. 

  • SUSE helps our customers become more environmentally friendly by better utilizing their hardware and prolonging hardware usage life. 

Serving Green Economy

  • The impact of open source on sustainability issues is broad and varied, and SUSE’s solutions have helped several customers address sustainability challenges in innovative ways. 

  • Hypergiant Industries, an artificial intelligence company, is using SUSE Rancher to create a fleet of sustainable satellites, tackling the growing problem of space junk and one-time use of valuable resources. 

  • Austrian meteorological and geodynamics agency ZAMG uses SUSE Linux Enterprise to model weather patterns and monitor earthquake activity, using data science to better understand the effects of climate change.
