Microsoft publishes "Green Design Principles"

Microsoft Design has recently published their "Green Design Principles" as a free guide to download. These Principles are split into two main categories: ‘Think bigger before you start’, and ‘Build better by default’, underpinned by an emphasis that we must understand the wider context of the climate crisis.

  • “Thinking bigger before we start” encourages us to ask ourselves challenging questions to set the foundation for our projects and ensure we follow an approach that is more likely to deliver positive outcomes.

  • “Building better by default” encourages us to ensure that best practices in efficient design and development are not an after thought, but the standard way that we approach our work.

It’s interesting to see how, like the Sustainable Web Manifesto, they have blended both technical and philosophical factors to create a more holistic approach to creating sustainable digital services.
