We haven’t done that full calculation. But it’s trending downwards towards zero. OpenAI’s infrastructure runs on Azure, and Azure will be running on 100% renewable energy by 2025.


thanks, but you cannot disclose any information for the status quo?
i am doing generative artwork and i’d love to calculate and publish the CO2-emissions of my art practise.

not sure if this helps but check it out Microsoft Sustainability Calculator helps enterprises analyze the carbon emissions of their IT infrastructure | Azure blog and updates | Microsoft Azure


CO2 footprint of OpenAI is nothing compared to YouTube, and adult content is the king of CO2, nearly 1% of global emissions.
