- By 2025, it is estimated that the global data will surpass 180 zettabytes.
- The amount of digital data is doubling every two years.
- A typical data-driven business employing 100 full-time employees will generate approximately 2,203 tons of CO2 emissions annually due to new data, which is equivalent to a cost of $28,267 for nature-based carbon offsetting.
- The inclusion of the data CO2 footprint is a crucial factor missing from global decarbonisation policies.
- Data centres are responsible for 2.5% to 3.7% of all human-induced carbon dioxide. More than the aviation industry (2.1%).
By using the tool, believed to be the first of its kind, companies can make data-driven decisions that benefit the environment and save money by reducing reliance on carbon offsetting schemes.
