Resources for the decarbonisation and transitioning of digital technologies to within safe planetary boundaries:
  • Ask: Do you actually need it? Who loses out and benefits? Is there lower-impact way?
  • Remove old posts/data/content off the web that’s no longer relevant or in use.
  • Reward energy efficiency and less energy use - celebrate your caring efforts!
  • Switch to renewable energy sources, and use servers, cloud storage and networks powered by renewable energy.
  • Using still images, audio, or low-resolution video for internal and public communications.
  • Purchase energy-efficient equipment and keep it as long as possible.
  • Extend the lives and use of appliances by servicing and repair.
  • Reward emotional attachment to our devices.
  • Lease instead of purchasing outright to retain affordability and extend use.
