The Green Pages
Resources for understanding, measuring and reducing
the environmental impact of the digital industry.
Cause & Effect
The emissions caused by the internet are on a par with the aviation industry. Websites, apps, widgets, APIs and adverts all have a carbon footprint, and there are decisions we all can make to reduce this. Decisions around design, architecture, engineering, hosting, content, media, advertising and SEO all impact the carbon footprint of the solutions that we build. The world is missing a set of digital standards for sustainability. In the short term we hope that The Green Pages helps teams fill this gap.
The BIMA Sustainability Council is made up of Amy, James, Joe, Liam, Neil, Jennifer, Marcus and Ingrid. We’d like to extend a massive thank you to Complex Creative for building this low emitting website and The Positive Internet Company for hosting it at their wind powered Positive Park data centre.
