Formed in 2013, the Sustainable Web Design CG brings together likeminded individuals from a variety of backgrounds with a passion for Sustainability. The goal of this community is to establish a set of formal guidelines (similar to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) to help end-users, Web workers, stakeholders, educators, and policy makers, improve the sustainability of their products and services. Whilst we are not a standards making group, in the future we can look to have our guidelines adopted as such in-or-as a working group within the W3C.
To contribute: check out your specialism page below in the wiki (it's where each group can collaborate on making recommendations), feel free to share useful URL's in our References page, and keep a watchful eye on our Github repo as that's where the final compiled recommendations (and any new research undertaken within the group) will be published.
