Building a greener web

Patterns and tooling for carbon aware web performance

It's 2021, and we are in a climate emergency.

If you're a web professional, you've probably figured out that if the internet runs on electricity, and a lot of electricity comes from burning fossil fuels, there are steps we can take as technologists to make our use of the internet measurably more sustainable, by changing how we use digital infrastructure.

In this talk, we'll cover some of the levers available to you as a maker of digital services, and how we can extend open source tools to help design greener, more accessible, more performant websites.

We'll show examples from companies you've heard of doing this in production right now, and give clear next steps for those beginning their climate journey.
