The internet currently produces approximately 3.7% of global carbon emissions, which are rising in line with our hunger to consume more data. Increasingly, web technologies are also being used to sow discontent, erode privacy, prompt unethical decisions, and, in some countries, undermine personal freedoms and the well-being of society.

Sustainable web design is an approach to designing web services that puts people and planet first. It delivers digital products, services, and data that respect the principles of the Sustainable Web Manifesto: clean, efficient, open, honest, regenerative, and resilient.
