The sustainable.dev mission, values and the people making it happen


The internet is responsible for a greal deal of carbon being released into the atmosphere, about as much as the aviation industry - and it's on a constantly growing trajectory.

With that in mind, I believe it's time that we all started incorporating more sustainable practices into our working methods within web development.

The mission is to help people within the tech industry, specifically web designers and developers, to understand the need for change; to assist in making those changes through written articles, code snippets and examples.


The values are pretty simple really. I follow these values so we can all live in a healthier world, whether on or offline.

  • To share up to date, industry-specific information around sustainable web development to the best of my knowledge.
  • To collaborate with, guide, and encourage others in developing more sustainable websites, applications, and digital products.

Hello World

My name is Nick Lewis. I'm a web developer from the UK.

Seeing the world being affected by climate change first hand, I decided that I needed to do more to help make it a better place.

Working in the tech industry day-in-day-out and knowing some tips and tricks in order to make websites more sustainable, I figured that this would be a great place to focus upon. That's how I got the idea for the sustainable dev.

I'm on the lookout for contributors who can assist in creating more helpful content for a tech-focused audience. I realise I can't do this alone. It is a big ask, but one that aims to benefit our planet.
