Today I learned about the tool Image Carbon Opens in new tab. It's a tool that helps you to calculate the carbon footprint of your websites images.

After entering a URL it will show you the amount of CO2 you could reduce by optimizing your images. It can achieve that by uisng the Sustainable Web Design Opens in new tab model.

It checks every image on your page for the format and the size and tells you how you could improve on that.

Here are the results for my website: Opens in new tab

Reducing your image sizes by compressing them and using better formats is not only better for your websites performance but also for reducing the carbon footprint.
