Montréal-based technology startup becomes the first video communication service provider in the world to achieve carbon neutrality
MONTREAL—June 28th 2021—Crewdle, a technology start-up that leverages peer-to-peer (P2P) technology for high quality video conferencing, today 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.
The Green DNA of a company
Crewdle co-founders Vincent Lamanna and Pierre Campeau established the company with a vision of innovating P2P technology with an earnest dedication to conserve natural resources. Since its founding less than a year ago, the P2P video conferencing platform has allowed users to save:
“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.
Crewdle P2P technology is engineered to host increasingly larger groups of people and remove the reliance on server-based throughput for video conferencing. The extended benefits deliver secure, end-to-end encrypted communications that bypass third-party handling with greatly reduced energy consumption for lower carbon emissions.
Crewdle officially launched in April 2021, and is available now for individual users free of charge online with no download or installation. Crewdle is also available for mobile devices from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. A subscription-based model for small and medium-sized business (SMB) with added features and scalability is available via digital distribution.
