Sustainable, Consumer-Friendly Practices

 Mission Statement

The Clean Software Alliance (CSA) is a champion of sustainable, consumer-friendly practices within the software distribution ecosystem.


As a 501(c)(6) nonprofit trade association, the CSA works to advance the interests of the software development community through the establishment and enforcement of guidelines, policies and technology tools that balance the software industry’s needs while preserving user choice and user control.

CSA works inclusively across its constituents of online security vendors, software distribution & monetization firms, installer platform companies, browser providers, computer platform developers and third party certification companies to find consumer-friendly solutions to the challenges of economically sustainable software distribution.
