Let’s take the right path together,
to take action on your company’s digital carbon footprint
Digital carbon impact:
1000 miles with your mailbox !
A standard email generates around 4g of CO2. Sending a 1MB attachment to 10 colleagues is the same as driving 500 meters. But, to arrive safely, your email travels an average of 15,000 kilometers.
Today, we believe that it is urgent to take action in all areas to reduce our digital carbon footprint on the planet by limiting the kilometers that we can perceive but also those that we can’t.
Even if we don’t see these piling up, like an overflowing trash can, digital pollution is genuinely real. We decided to make it more visual, more tangible in order to raise awareness among companies, in terms of the impact and provide the tools to reduce it.
Through the use of cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence technologies, and leaning on the advice of experts, we are now able to simply assess the digital carbon footprint of your business, through the use of our tools.
Easy to use and completely integrated, they help companies better understand and manage their digital impact through reasoned, quantified and measurable results. Our comprehensive, tailor-made and scalable dashboard highlights your digital carbon footprint and eases your efforts to achieve your CSR goals.
We are here to reach out to those who wish to forge ahead.

Digital carbon footprint, a few figures…
4,2% of primary energies
This is the total consumption of the digital sector in the world.
One is headed towards the depletion of natural resources
In France, the Earth Overshoot Day took place on May 7, 2021. Our planet’s state of health is getting worse and natural resources are shrinking away, as the years go by. Digital equipment, very large consumers of fossil fuels and raw materials, tends to aggravate the problem over the course of technological developments.
80% of companies are sensitive
to the fight against digital pollution and in favor of the climate
A new challenge for companies
By reducing expenses when it comes to digital pollution, they will be able to improve their image and their employer branding. In the short term, it is also about ensuring the company’s compliance within the legal framework that is increasingly precise and complete.
15 million tons of CO₂
This is the quantity of emissions, due to the digital sector in France in 2019.
Digital, a source of pollution
Accelerators of growth and attractiveness for companies, digital tools also improve communication and sharing of information. However, they are a major contributor when it comes to climate change. At every stage of their life cycle, they are a source of CO₂ emissions and mostly seem to make a negative carbon impact.
1 billion euros per year
This is the cost of digital pollution in France.
Digital carbon footprint, an economic impact
In addition to making an impact on the environment in a major way, digital pollution represents a certain economic cost on a global scale. It is also a source of significant expenditure for companies, mainly in energy, equipment and waste treatment.
