Digital Carbon Footprint
A digital carbon footprint is the CO2 emissions resulting from the production, use and data transfer of digital devices and infrastructure.
Every minute spent scrolling, browsing the internet, streaming a video all contribute to our digital carbon footprint. Global email usage generates as much CO2 as having 7 million extra cars on the road. If each email user in the UK sent 1 less email per day, we could reduce emissions by 16,433 tonnes of CO2; the equivalent of 81,152 flights from London to Madrid.
