Cloud Computing (CC) has recently received substantial attention, as a promising approach for providing various information and communication technologies (ICT) services. Running enormously complicated and sophisticated software on the cloud requires more energy and most of the energy is wasted. It is required to explore opportunities to reduce emission of carbon in the CC environment that causes global warming. Global warming affects environment and it is required to lessen greenhouse gas

In literature, most of the energy-saving techniques focus on hardware aspects. Many improvements can be done in regard to energy efficiency from the software perspective by considering and paying attention to the energy consumption aspects of software for environmental sustainability. The aim of the research is to propose energy-aware profiling environmental sustainability techniques based on parameterized development technique to reduce the energy that has been spent and measure its efficiency inured to support software developers to enhance their code development process in terms of reducing energy. Experiments have been carried out and results prove that the suggested techniques have enabled in achieving energy consumption and achieve environmental sustainability.
