About the project Edit

CO2Stats is an easy-to-use service that makes your website carbon neutral and energy-efficient, and that provides certification that you have taken steps to make your site environmentally friendly. Your website has a carbon footprint and for this reason, it contributes to climate change. A Website has a carbon footprint because electricity is required to power the servers that host your website, the computers used to view it, and the global networks that connect them. Much of that electricity is created from the burning of fossil fuels, like coal, oil and natural gas, all of which emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. While many people may assume that websites have negligible carbon footprints, that is not the case. According to studies, the global carbon emissions due to information and communications technology are greater than those of the entire aviation industry. In fact, studies suggest that infotech as a whole may contribute 2% of the world's carbon emissions, and many expect it to grow significantly in the next decade. CO2Stats makes it easy for you to make your website more environmentally friendly, using a software suite that helps you to make your site energy-efficient and carbon neutral.
