What are the Co2 emissions coming from a device, such as my phone?
Smartphones do not emit Co2 themselves, but they do cause Co2 emissions.
1) They require energy to charge the phone. Energy (often) means fossils fuel are burned.
2) The production and shipping of your phone requires energy or transportation that requires burning fuel.
3) The infrastructure supporting your phone (phone masts, network routers, etc) also needs energy.

Why do you not take into account the Co2 caused for production and shipping?
We are considering offering this as an option, but at this moment we aim to limit the Co2 reduction to the energy used by the phone only. If you are interested, you can find an interesting article on Apple Iphones here.
