Duo Software becomes first CarbonNeutral Software Product Developer in the world.

“We wanted environmental and social responsibility to be an intrinsic part of what we do. Thus we did not want to be simply another company that ‘went green’ just for the sake of developing a marketing ploy.

Duo Software ( Pvt ) Ltd a software product development company with its development center in Colombo became the world’s first software product development company to achieve CarbonNeutral status recently. The innovative company that is known as a provider of Subscriber Management, Billing, Customer Care and customer life cycle management solutions to enterprises in highly competitive industries, was recently awarded the CarbonNetural status by the CarbonNeutral Company of the UK through their Regional Certification Partner - The Carbon Consulting Company.

The vision for software development in the low carbon economy stems from the founding CEO, Muhunthan Canagey. “I believed that we needed to embed our belief systems into what we actually produced,” he says. “We wanted environmental and social responsibility to be an intrinsic part of what we do. Thus we did not want to be simply another company that ‘went green’ just for the sake of developing a marketing ploy. Becoming CarbonNetural is a tangible demonstration of the company’s commitment towards helping create a more sustainable world and for creating the products that will suit that world.”

The first step was taken when the company revamped its IT infrastructure by replacing all personal computers with energy efficient laptops and reducing the number of servers deployed. This enabled the company to substantially reduce its footprint and gear itself up for a drive to completely offset it’s carbon. After being certified CarbonNeutral, the company re-enforced its commitment toward cutting its carbon footprint by appointing a Chief Carbon Officer.

Jennifer Perera, the CFO of the company added this new responsibility to her considerable portfolio, and is tasked with tracking and cutting the company's footprints.
