Resolutions Resolution: Environmental Impact Feedback?
This was approved on February 24, 2017 by the Board of Trustees.

The Wikimedia Foundation is committed to seeking ways to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment. We aim to always act responsibly and sustainably as possible, including favoring renewable energy for our operations. We believe that a long-term commitment to sustainability is an essential component of our work towards the Wikimedia mission and vision.

To this end, the Wikimedia Foundation makes the following commitments:

  1. We will seek to minimize our overall impact on the environment;
  2. We will consider sustainability as an important part of decisions around servers, operations, travel, offices, and other procurement;
  3. We will use green energy where it is available and financially prudent; and
  4. Starting in 2018, we will include an environmental impact statement in our annual plan.
