Renewable Energy

After reading an article on Wired about CO2 emmisions from streaming companies (https://www.wired.co.uk/article/youtube-digital-waste-interaction-design), I wondered what Deezers’ emmisions were like. Do they use renewable energy, like Apple and Google music, or do they use non-renewables?
I hope someone from Deezer can answer, as I couldn’t find a contact email.

Hi there @spizellapusilla @Seth.Goodwin

Thank you for coming to us with this subject. I'm sorry the topic fell off our radar - most likely because the matter isn't related to app support or music - although it's a very relevant topic.
I can confirm that we're currently discussing this between ourselves, but we haven't got more details about it at the moment. When we do, we'll update this topic for your information.

I'm sure someone at Deezer can answer, so it's sad that they have not.

I have the same concern. There was a similar article in The Rolling Stone (https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/environmental-impact-streaming-music-835220/). I wish there were a more recent version of the Greenpeace report (http://www.clickclean.org/usa/en/).

I also read that one way to reduce the impact is using downloads so may try this, but I prefer using the playlists that are regularly updated so it'll be less fun.

I hope Deezer will respond and take action to improve where needed.
I love using Deezer, but I love planet Earth a little more ;o)

Thanks for (finally) responding. I think that it is really important that all online service consider the impact that they leave on the environment. Perhaps this is more important than other services, as the impact is, perhaps, in other countries, making it more difficult to know what effect the service is having.

Thanks
