Sustainable software production is a relatively new research area within green IT. Software development industry has started getting pressure from regulators and their customers to consider green software development. They often need to make a trade-off among different requirements based on certain criteria and company objectives. This research evaluates environmental sustainability and software quality criteria using a well-known multi criteria decision making approach: Analytical Network Process (ANP). The aim is to prioritize green software criteria in order to use in trade-off models. ANP involves identification of the interrelationship and the intensity of importance and influence between different criteria. The results are presented to be useful in energy saving models of software and/or software development process.
