The climate crisis demands immediate action, in order to prevent every bit of warming we can. Organizations are big emitters, because they consume, spend, and grow — a lot. All of those economic activities are strongly coupled with emissions. We do our emission assessments because that information is key to taking informed action. Our previous assessments in 2019, 2020, and 2021 already influenced our equipment policy and event policy.

We recently announced our immediate archival strategy, which will ensure the content on ResearchEquals stays available in case of an immediate, disastrous event (e.g., accidents, business shutting down). In this post, we describe how we implemented this archive strategy, which is run at zero cost using open-source software. The immediate archive is continuously updated and made available using GitHub and GitHub Actions.
