Introducing the Umbraco Sustainability Package: Building a greener web
2 minute read
Since joining the Umbraco Community Sustainability team in May 2023, we've been working collaboratively on a project to integrate a sustainability tracking tool directly into Umbraco development. Today we're pleased to announce that the Umbraco Sustainability Package is publicly available as an alpha release
At Umbraco's Community Team Days in September 2023, the collaborative approach from the team yielded some productive outcomes. Inspired by tools like Website Carbon Calculator, Ecograder, and Ecoping, and working alongside Thomas Morris from TPX Impact, we envisioned integrating sustainability directly into Umbraco development. We wanted to create a tool for tracking the carbon footprint of individual pages within Umbraco sites.
Sustainability needs to be a core consideration in modern web development. The Umbraco Sustainability package, spearheaded by the Community team, represents a crucial step towards a greener, cleaner web.
Join us in building a new standard for web development, one that prioritises both functionality and environmental responsibility.
