We present the DIMPACT /dimpækt/ tool for environmental assessments of digital services. The tool enables digital media providers to calculate energy consumption and associated environmental impact across the entire product system, including datacentres, networks and user devices. It is based on accepted standard methodologies and applies state-of-the-art research. The DIMPACT tool is used by major media organisations for environmental reporting and to support development of strategies to reduce environmental impact. It has significantly advanced the knowledge of carbon emissions of video streaming. The tool is part of the wider DIMPACT project of companies that collaborate to exchange knowledge, engage suppliers and expand the scope of the tool. In this text we provide an overview of workings of tool and its methodological foundation.
