We achieve this by implementing sustainable design and efficient coding practices, offering green hosting and subscribing to sustainable enterprises who actively promote positive change in the world. Our team is committed to staying up-to-date with the latest sustainability practices and incorporating them into all aspects of our work.
What is sustainable website design and why is it important?
Sustainable websites are environmentally friendly and socially responsible. Creating sustainable websites involves designing and developing websites that take into account factors such as energy, accessibility, site speed, longevity, environmental impact and conservation of resources whilst ensuring that they provide a positive user experience.
The ICT industry, which includes the internet, produces carbon emissions that are just as significant as those of the aviation industry. Unoptimized website assets, in particular, consume over three times more resources to load than optimised ones. If all active websites utilised fully optimised assets, we could reduce our carbon footprint by the equivalent of 93,000 car trips around the world.
One of the biggest changes you can make towards creating a sustainable website is utilising green hosting. Green hosting, also known as eco-friendly hosting or sustainable hosting, refers to web hosting services that utilise environmentally friendly practices to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainability.
We only offer hosting that is run on 100% renewable energy from top of the line technology that ensures the best performance and security.
At our core, we firmly believe in the shared responsibility of driving positive change. We recognize that while individual action is vital, the true power to effect change lies in collective efforts and community collaboration. Therefore, we take great pride in part of and supporting enterprises such as ecologi, better business act and climateaction.tech
