Corporate Social Responsability – Introduction
- 24 April 2023
It is almost the end of 2022 and the challenges we’re facing are more imminent now than ever.
For example, studies have shown that digital carbon footprint takes up around 3.7% of global CO2 emissions, almost the same percentage as the global aviation industry. Manufacturing and running digital technology emit 1.6-1.7 billion tons of greenhouse gas. Additionally, the numbers are predicted to double by 2022.
Putting this into perspective, the carbon dioxide emitted per internet user is 414 kg a year.
With more than half of the population using the internet and some form of digital device, it is time to acknowledge and discuss the impact that we have on the world around us.
Therefore, Mediawen decided to take action and openly discuss our responsibility as a digital company. In the next few months of our video series, we will cover the responsibilities that we have been doing as well as openly discuss with you other thought-provoking topics surrounding CSR.
