Abstract: The Internet is evolving at an unprecedented pace. The data flowing back and forth constantly changes and doubles up every two years. Internet traffic is seeing more and more clients and therefore, websites are mainly focused on scalability but not on sustainability which is becoming wide apart. Among the earliest adopters, people well aware of climate change are known to be claiming for climate justice and this is increasingly becoming an exploit factor for new businesses seeking to boost their online presence. However, most websites lack the knowledge on how to effectively turn their resources to carbon neutral and most important: how to aim for sustainability. Therefore, a RESTful API has been developed to perform sustainability audits and stress the essentials that every sustainability-oriented website must have.
