Stats, Facts & Savings



The energy used in creating and sending an average email has a carbon footprint of 0.3g CO2e.*



That’s the equivalent of walking through an external door of a heated building on a winters day.



If Britain’s overall workforce sent two less emails per day each year, it would save the carbon dioxide equivalent of 35,000 economy flights between UK and Spain.
