The intersection between the technological revolution in cloud migration innovation and its broader societal implications forms the core of my academic exploration, bridging my internship experience at Fannie Mae and STS research paper. The internship provided hands-on experience in implementing cloud technology within a leading mortgage financing company, and my discoveries working with such cutting-edge technology prompted my STS research to explore the environmental ethics within Cloud migration and how to sustain this new era of the digital age. Together, these projects illuminate the dual aspects of technological progress, their potential to progress businesses and society to new limits, and the grave ramifications that may lie within their environmental impacts if not appropriately innovated sustainably. This synthesis underscores the critical need for environmental ethics to understand cloud technology's place within modern society and its future trajectory.
