Why make your website sustainable?

The internet currently produces approx 3.8% of global emissions according to some estimates. It is similar to the amount produced by the airline industry globally, and these emissions are predicted to double by 2025.

Growth and consumer loyalty

Organisations making ESG (environmental, social and governance) related claims average 28% cumulative growth over the past 5 years vs those that didn’t.

Future-Proofing

Organisations that embrace sustainable website design are better positioned to adapt to future changes in environmental regulations and consumer expectations, reducing the risk of obsolescence.

Environmental protection + resource conservation

Sustainable website design and utilisation of energy-efficient hosting contribute to overall energy conservation, helping to address the global challenge of resource depletion.

What makes a website sustainable?

  • Low resource. Low carbon emission. Low impact.
  • Accessible to a wide, diverse audience.
  • Prepared for future regulatory requirements.
  • Green energy

    Using only Green energy is key to having a sustainable website. Our servers are all run on 100% renewable energy. Meaning your website has a low environmental impact.

  • Accessibility

    Integrating accessibility features is a powerful catalyst for enhancing usability, transcending the boundaries of disability to benefit all users.

  • Optimisation

    Small changes such as optimising images and design or reducing unnecessary animations, can result in faster page load times. Faster loading pages contribute to a better user experience by reducing frustration and providing quicker access to content. This in turn contributes to making websites more accessible, while using fewer resources.

  • Compliance

    We prepare websites and businesses for future regulatory shifts. Organisations that embrace sustainable website practices are better positioned to adapt to future changes in environmental regulations and consumer expectations, reducing the risk of obsolescence.

Why make your website accessible?

Incorporating accessibility not only benefits individuals with disabilities but also boosts customer satisfaction and engagement.

  • 15-20% of the population is neurodivergent (icaew). 
  • 2.2 billion people have vision impairments (WHO).

Learning difficulties affect at least 20%, with over 15% alone being dyslexia related (The Reading Well).

Expanding user base

Businesses could unlock a market of 13 trillion by embarrassing disability inclusion

Ethical responsibility

51% of consumers are willing to pay more for products and services from business that prioritise web accessibility.

Compliance

Digital products that fully comply are expected to have 50% higher market performance and avoid lawsuits.

Analyse

We kick off with an audit and create a detailed and insightful report evaluating your current website’s environmental impact.
