About this talk
The internet has a larger carbon footprint than the aviation industry and the numbers are rising rapidly. With 4.5 billion people making trillions of online interactions every minute, this is hardly a surprise.
That said, when it comes to a digital carbon footprint of an average organisation - their digital carbon emissions will be relatively small compared to their overall company emissions. So why should a company focus on decarbonising their digital infrastructure, platforms and operations?
This talk by James Cannings, Chief Sustainability Officer at MSQ and co-founder of MMT Digital, will focus on the core benefits of low-carbon digital business solutions (digital and web platforms, in particular), discuss some of the tools for measuring digital carbon footprint, and explore the skills company employees need to accelerate digital carbon reduction.
