Our digital carbon footprint

Every search query, every song or video streamed and every email sent, billions of times around the world – it all contributes to an ever-increasing global demand for electricity, as well as rising CO2 emissions. Our increasing reliance on digital tools has an environmental impact that is increasingly difficult to ignore.

Now someone recently said that we should not worry about our electricity consumption. That we were going to solve this quickly with our ‘green’ energy.

It reminds me of my childhood. Where we went on Sunday rides with our ‘new ford fiesta’. We had no destination. We were just driving around for fun. That was new toy. My father used to ride a triporteur or cargo bike. Now I see a lot of cargo bikes on the street again.

Still others thought we could slow things down a bit thanks to Covid-19. The research has been done. Europe has investigated it . Unfortunately, the reality is that we have eagerly compensated for our economic standstill by fully playing the digital card. Children’s digital consumption behavior in particular grew exponentially. Online teaching comes at a cost.

That’s why I say, let’s raise a tree about that together?
