HOW IT WORKS
SUSTAINABLE WEB DESIGN
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.
The internet’s carbon footprint is a whopping 830 million tons of CO2 annually
332 million tons of CO2 falls at least partially under the responsibility of people who make the web
It takes 13 kWh to transmit 1GB of data
The average U.S. power plant emits 1.2 pounds of CO2e per kWh used.
The average web page size weighs 1.4 Mb, that’s a total of 1,367GB of data.
Mobile data (3G/4G/LTE) is up to five times more polluting
Tumblr has the potential to be responsible for a staggering 2,600 tons of CO2 daily.
At 1.4MB, today’s average page is 15 times larger than it was 10 years ago
Viewing a simple web page generates about 20 milligrams of carbon dioxide per second
