Question

Has the brand (company) published the annual carbon-footprint of its ‘own operations’ including the energy used in the data centers?

Dutch version: Heeft het merk (bedrijf) zijn 'voetafdruk' gepubliceerd voor de CO2 uitstoot als gevolg van de eigen bedrijfsvoering, inclusief het energieverbuik in de datacenters?

German version: Veröffentlicht der Markenhersteller eine absolute Klimabilanz zum eigenen Betrieb (einschließlich Energieverbrauch der Datenzentren)?

Reference and Guidelines

This question is generic, and is applicable to the brands in most sectors that we rank. For Reference and Guidelines, see the first part of Generic Carbon Emissions Question 2. The second part of this question corresponds to Generic Carbon Emissions Question 3.

Please note that also the energy used in the data centers should be included in the footprint calculation. Also Greenpeace urges website companies to publish the carbon footprint with the Cool IT campaign (see p.24).
