The transition to a more sustainable future requires not only technological innovation, but also new opportunities for society to participate in the development and adoption of technologies. Open source software accelerates the transition to a sustainable economy by supporting traceable decision-making, building capacity for localisation and customisation of climate technologies, and most importantly, helping to prevent greenwashing. Yet, despite the transformative impact of open source culture and its use within an estimated 97% of digital products, its potential for developing environmentally sustainable technologies is not well understood.

Our study provides the first analysis of the open source software ecosystem in sustainability and climate technology.
