Why We Do It

While remaining largely hidden from sight, the Internet uses an enormous amount of energy and has quickly become a major source of carbon emissions. With no end to this growth in sight, we need to take action to curb these emissions.

The Internet now accounts for about 10% of global electricity consumption.
If the Internet were a country, it would be the sixth largest consumer of electricity on the planet behind Russia, Japan, China, India, and the US.
The Internet produces about 2 percent of global CO2 emissions annually—thats the same amount as the aviation industry.
FACT BREAK
