In recent years, green software research is gaining momentum from the acute need for sustainable development as well as the far-reaching effect of ICT to our society. "[Green and] Sustainable Software is software, whose direct and indirect negative impacts on economy, society, human beings, and environment that result from development, deployment, and usage of the software are minimal and/or which
have a positive effect on sustainable development" . Based on this definition, green software research is growing in two directions. The first direction looks into the runtime energy consumption of software  and its engineering pro-aspects of our society and investigates how software can be used to improve the sustainability of a broader range of business, social, and individual activities . This chapter is focused on the research and development in the second direction-to leverage software to solve sustainability problems on a wider scope.
