Crewdle, a technology start-up that leverages peer-to-peer (P2P) technology for high quality video conferencing, announced it obtained a carbon neutral certification from Planetair.ca, a Canadian non-profit leader in the fight against climate change. The company’s unique peer-to-peer technology consumes minimal energy, leaving a small environmental footprint–where server-based providers trend much higher. With a commitment to making a difference through reduced carbon emissions, the Crewdle founders and its team invested in Gold Standard carbon-credits, leading to the Planetair certification.

“We are in a race against time to become carbon-neutral. The Crewdle P2P video conferencing platform became a net zero emissions company through the commitment and participation of our employees and users.” Vincent Lamanna, CEO and Co-founder of Crewdle.
- 1,684kg of CO2; an equivalent to driving over 11,777km—Montreal to Juneau, Alaska return; absorbing those same emissions would have required planting 337 trees
- 20,210L of fresh water; equivalent to 40,419 bottles of water—or 338 showers
- 4,027kWh of energy; the consumption of an entire household for eight months
“We are in a race against time to be a carbon neutral planet, and everyone must play a role. The Crewdle P2P video conferencing platform not only greatly reduces carbon emissions, but allows us to be a net zero emission company by offsetting our operations through the participation and impact of our employees,” said Vincent Lamanna, Co-founder and CEO of Crewdle. “We chose the Gold Standard carbon credits because they are among the most recognized in the world to offset current and future emissions,” added Lamanna.
