In Google’s 2022 Cloud Sustainability Survey, 65% of IT executives want to improve sustainability efforts but don't know how to do it and 36% say they lack tools to track progress toward sustainability goals, and just 17% say they are using those measurements to optimize based on results.  Google predicts that by 2025, 3 of 4 developers will lead with sustainability as their primary development principle.

Mozilla MDN Green could be a resource section on MDN for tools, strategies, standards, and impacts of developing more environmentally friendly code - optimizing images, minimizing unnecessary compute, caching, creating low-bandwidth page design, [insert your idea here].

Cloud compute, AI, blockchain, and other energy-hungry computational tasks are predicted to vastly increase in the coming years. Keeping these services running will require businesses and individuals to have more effective strategies and tools for managing energy consumption in order to meet climate objectives and mitigate rising energy costs, restrictions, and scarcities

That is an interesting idea. It would also be great to provide feedback on the impact of certain decisions, for example, that recent survey that shows the programming language choice regarding computation performance was really nice.

Having a full section on MDN related to it would be innovative, and increase the value of MDN environment-wise and developer-wise.

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

It is great that mozilla is developing environmentally friendly information technology without profit motives. I hope it will reduce users' power consumption and extend the lifespan of their hardware.
