Community & Business Groups

Web Ecology Community Group

The purpose of this group should be to discuss anything that could enhance the web and reduce its impact on environment. Discussion could be about, for example:

  • Improving efficiency of apis
  • Reducing data consumption
  • Upgrading apis to make them less greedy in energy

Millions of kilowatts are wasted in the world each year because of various reasons, such as:

  • Bad algorithms
  • Data storing (ex : spams)
  • Wrong processes

Any idea that could make the web more respectful for environment is welcome to this group.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2020-12-14 by Medhi Hanai. The following people supported its creation: Medhi Hanai, Frank Corsi, Ivan Herman, JindÅ™ich Kolman, Atrthit Kosachunhanun. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at site-comments@w3.org

Thank you,
