Why was The Green Web created?
The Green Web by The Green Web Foundation: towards a sustainable Internet
Internet provides us the luxury of unprecedented digital connection, but at the same time the amount of energy needed to keep millions of websites, servers and data centres up and running is enormous. Many people do not realise that the internet has become one of today’s major polluters, already responsible for as much CO2 emission as the entire aviation industry. And with the continued demand on our internet infrastructure the problem is not going to get easier. But together we can make a difference to our environment.
The Green Web enables you to easily check your web servers environmental footprint and compensate the carbon emissions generated by the hosting of- and visits to your website. Whether compensation is through renewable energy or internet forests, the objective is to create a sustainable internet.
