ICT can provide a definitive contribution in reducing CO2 emissions and, in general, in the environment preservation. Because its pervasiveness in today’s life, software in particular plays an important role in achieving such a goal. Software process is the combination of those practices, directly or indirectly involved in software development, operation, and maintenance.
In previous papers the authors addressed the topic of evaluating the sustainability of software products. In this paper the focus is on the evaluation of the sustainability of the software process, i.e. the measurement of the extent the process is performed by having care of the environment and by minimizing its impact on the environment. To do that, a sustainability measurement framework for software process is defined. Such a framework is composed by Sustainability Levels, Sustainability Process Attributes and being compliant with the requirements stated in the new ISO/IEC 33000 series standard for software process assessment.
