The urgency is clear – governments must take bold steps. BHRinLaw.org is more than a website; it’s a call to action. Together, let’s embed corporate responsibility into law and champion human rights globally.

A website, yes; but sustainable

0.49g of CO2/view. That is the emissions of our website, which is approximately the equivalent of the amount of CO2 produced by boiling a small pot of water for tea or coffee.

Overall, we can proudly say that this website is cleaner than 49% of the pages tested. How do we know? Calculating the carbon emissions of the website is somewhat of a challenge, but the W3C Community has been working for many years to develop and refine a methodology for this purpose. The concept is to create measurable sustainability standards for the web. For more information on how it works and the methodology, check their site.
