When considering sustainability[1] implications you need[4] to think about how efficiently and environmentally friendly your outcome[5] is.

This considers the development and running of your outcome. For example running a web server will have an environmental impact due to the electricity usage so low power or shared servers[2] could be beneficial.

Questions that you should consider are:

  • What are the environmental impacts of the outcome?
  • How can the outcome be maintained in the long term?
  • What are the most efficient resources[3] that can be used to make the outcome?
