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 in sight to this growth, 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—that's the same amount as the aviation industry.
FACT BREAK
The energy it takes to send one tweet generates .02 grams of CO2. About 500 million tweets are made daily. Do the math.
