The Circular Economy in Software Engineering

Hosted by Lloyds Banking Group

The Circular Economy is a model for production and consumption which aims to circulate resources within an economy without creating waste. While this has a significant application in manufacturing, the concept also applies to the world of technology and software development. Join experts from Lloyds Banking Group as they discuss how Innersource, Open Source and Green Coding practices contribute to the circular economy by reducing waste, re-work, and CO2 production. This event will be of particular interest to software engineers and those interested in how sustainable engineering practices can help businesses reduce their carbon footprint.

This event is part of the bank’s Digital Transformation UK meet-up series which launched at Leeds Digital Festival in 2018.
