We live in a time characterised by high-temperature records, forest fires and acid rains, rising levels of seas that soon will contain more plastic than fish, by grain shortages and by uncertainty. It can make the most optimistic of us see red, quoting the UN. Still, it is a consolation that the EU has identified digitisation as a critical enabler for the green shift. We hope this guide can serve as a reference work for you who are concerned with reducing your own footprint in coding, design, content and project management.
We hope you will be inspired and motivated, and - not to mention - a little wiser about how you can contribute to reducing emissions. Enjoy your reading!
