How to prevent digital pollution: Digital Detox launches The Green Report

Humanity-led digital product agency, Digital Detox, have launched The Green Report, a product to help tackle climate change when it comes to sustainability in IT.

Designed to educate and propose tangible solutions to cut digital pollution, it serves as a support for business leaders in understanding the impact of their products, services, processes and behaviours.

With their first global client reporting 79,000kg carbon and ~$1million opex saved, this unique formula works to reduce carbon emissions across the four key areas: cloud, code, culture and customers. Carbon is saved across both Scope 2 and 3 emissions, the report helps to educate and motivate teams, all whilst playing a role in the all important CSR task.

The aim of The Green Report is not to demonise digital or to advise companies to build less, but to make digital processes better, smarter and more efficient. It has raised awareness of the danger of digital pollution, whilst providing tangible and trackable recommendations to positively impact the environment. In turn, this often saves cash, too.

With the Green Report Taster available for those who want a flavour of what their role in digital sustainability could be, through to more bespoke options targeted at all or some of the Four C’s, The Green Report is available now.
