Let's create a green and sustainable web
Act now or swim later! You want to minimize your digital footprint, become an ambassador for a green web and set your sails to an ecological and sustainable ride? You’re an UX/UI designer, a project manager, an online business owner, an influencer or you are simply interested in the matter? Welcome to this beautiful and fun journey to a more sustainable web and a greener tomorrow.
What’s the web’s footprint?
Data centers, telecommunication networks and end-user devices use massive amounts of energy and emit more than 830 million tons of CO2 per year (same as the aviation industry).*
CO2 is one of the biggest causes for climate change and therefore droughts, crop failures, rising sea levels, poverty, hunger, etc.
What’s a green web?
Your website, app or other kind of digital service is green, if you run it on renewable energy, you have very little data to load, you chose green digital tools for your work and you talk about all the sustainability efforts within your brand or business.
What tools are good to use?
You want to work in a greener and more sustainable way? There are so many super cool and helpful tools I use myself or heard great feedback from.
