With the effects of climate change globally manifesting, all sectors of the economy and society are aiming to reduce their carbon emissions. For the ICT sector the concept of sufficiency has been proposed as a paradigm to go beyond efficiency improvements towards an absolute reduction of carbon emissions. Yet little is known about the practical implementation of sufficiency and its carbon reduction potential. We are providing a concrete example of the user sufficiency sub-category by considering the quality-energy curves, in order to make trade-offs between user experience and energy consumption measurable and actionable, and allowing to quantify the carbon reduction potential from this intervention.
