Computop, the international payment service provider (PSP), has today announced that it has been certified by Green Software Design (GSD), an initiative of German IT firm Syngenio. The certification recognizes Computop’s contribution to making its software climate-friendly, including taking resource consumption into account when programming software applications.
After an initial analysis of the basic auditability of Computop’s payment platform Computop Paygate V7, the code was examined for resource efficiency. The "Green Software Expertyzer" from Syngenio was used to carry out this task. The A rating showed compliance with the requirements and paved the way for certification.
"We have always focused very much on efficiency and clear documentation when programming Computop Paygate, which is basically done in-house. This also benefited us when we were certified with the Green Software Design label," said Computop CTO Norman Krieghoff. "We were therefore very pleased to learn that our payment platform met the high standards of this certification right from the first review."
"Computop has fully met the criteria defined by Syngenio for minimising the carbon footprint for software," says Joachim Nübold, board member at Syngenio AG. "Paygate V.7 meets the highest security standards for financial transactions and is climate-friendly at the same time. The award of our Green Software Design label is an expression of the valuable work Computop is doing in the field of sustainable payment solutions."
Computop has been pursuing the goal of climate neutrality since 2019. To this end, the company's CO2 emissions are assessed annually, reduced through a variety of measures and, where avoidance is not yet possible, compensated. The certification of software development is part of these measures.
Retailers who use Computop Paygate have the certainty of resource-saving payment processing through GSD certification. They can make this clear with the button "Climate neutral payment with Computop" on their eCommerce website.
