Hey, I'm Fershad. I am a web sustainability consultant working with the Green Web Foundation towards a fossil free internet by 2030.
What I do
I work with the Green Web Foundation on open source projects, prototypes, and writing all with the aim to make web sustainability approachable and accessible to more developers. Some key projects I've been involved with include CO2.js, adding carbon emissions into the Firefox Profiler, and Are my third parties green?
I write every so often on my blog about topics relating to digital sustainability and performance. I also write notes and other thoughts at https://qt.fershad.com.
It's almost COP time, which means another website review! This year I'm focusing on the controversial Low Carbon Version of the COP28 website, and looking at how it has been implemented.
How much power does loading a JPEG, WebP, and AVIF image consumer on a user's device? In this post, I've used the Firefox Profiler to run some unscientific tests in the hopes of finding out.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of jumping on the Environment Variables: This Week in Green Software podcast with Chris Adams.
