Digital technology is omnipresent in today’s lifestyles, and we are now realizing its growing impacts. According to The Shift Project, digital technology could account for up to 8% of greenhouse gases by 2030.
Digital technology can also lead to inequality, and we were therefore determined to improve both our environmental and social impacts when we developed our new website.
Designing a conscious and respectful experience
The Dorval AM website was designed using the 3U principle: are the site’s functionalities useful, usable and used?
Respecting our users
Dorval AM respects your privacy, particularly in our application of GDPR. The site was developed using ethical design principles with close attention paid to the impacts of the site on users and their environment.
More responsible hosting
Our hosting service Scaleway ensures that datacenters are carbon neutral. They are certified ISO 27001 and ISO 50001, and have a PUE of 1.35 TTM (as at 07/19/2022).
Energy-efficient technical platform
Our architecture ensures that pages are not generated each time a user visits our site. All pages are generated once and delivered as they stand.
Measuring to improve
We use fruggr for measurement. We decided to use fruggr software to offer you a website that fits with our environmental and social values.
We have drawn on measurements right throughout the design of our website with the agency Digital4Better to enhance its impact.
