Proposed Group: Sustainable Web Design Community Group

The Sustainable Web Design Community Group has been proposed by Tim Frick:

A community group dedicated to creating sustainable websites.

You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group and people can join to begin work.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team

  1. Idea whose times has come. If physical buildings have eco-footprints, so do websites. WPO is not enough – efficiency engineering must be integrated with design and user experience for effective sustainability.

  2. Jonathan RENOULT says:

    It seems to me very interesting but also unclear.
    Even so we could define simple guidelines for sustainable modern websites — sort of good practices basis (open technologies, mvc model, accessibility, security…) — to non-web professionals (like administrations, firms, aso.)

  3. A page with some summary sustainable web design principles adapted from Industrial Design and the Permaculture movement: Sustainable Web Design Principles.
