The agreements and compromises that governments reached at the 2021 COP26 & 2022 COP27 Climate Change conferences, although incredibly important, don’t go far enough. There is now a large scientific consensus that humans are the leading cause of climate change.

Most people already know that they need to play their part and consume, waste and emit less. However, they may not have realised that their online digital activities are not as clean as they might have thought and may have serious consequences for the planet too.
