Your browsing climate impact, made visible.
CarbonViz is an extension that makes visible the impact of our digital activities on our energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions. You can visualize live your data consumption and associated co2 emissions in your browser while browsing.
We all consume, day after day, data that transit through the Internet. Accessing this content online seems normal, obvious. But "online" means that this data travels, that it comes from somewhere to our favorite browser. This journey is not easy or free. Dematerialization is very expensive, in terms of resources, infrastructure and ultimately energy costs.
CarbonViz is tackling this problem by aiming to improve the perception and understanding of digital energy issues. To better represent this information, analogies were chosen in co-creation with concerned users.
CarbonViz aims to raise awareness of the cost generated by our daily use of the Web.
