Other Decks in Business


  1. Jetting around the world to attend conferences and social events

    Using tools that consume lots of energy, leaving them on when no longer needed Always upgrading to the latest hardware Building sites that use inefficient code (linking to libraries and frameworks)
  2. Design interfaces that are easy to use Build websites accessible

    to all Organise communities and build networks
  3. A grassroots coalition of web developers working together to reduce

    our industry’s impact on the environment
  4. Build products that encourage and/or help people become more environmentally

    friendly Promote individuals and companies that are setting good examples Campaign against those that are not
  5. Think: The Web Standards Project yet not promoting standards, but

    encouraging people within our industry to reduce their impact on the environment
