How is your website impacting the planet?

Websites use energy. That much you'll be aware of. But do you know how much? If you take the internet as a whole, it has roughly the same emissions as global aviation! But it’s growing much faster and could reach 3.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions within 10 years

Each webpage that gets created, when viewed, uses energy to transfer the data to your device. Many developers and agencies don't think about the impact of the the sites they create. You might be shocked to see, when tested, how your own site fares.

How can I test my site?

There are fantastic tools out there to test your sites carbon footprint:

1. Website Carbon

A simple site that allows you to enter your website URL and find out how much energy it is using

2. Ecoping has a tool to review and advise you how reduce your company's website carbon emissions & boost performance

3. Google Lighthouse

Lighthouse is an open-source, automated tool for improving the quality of web pages. You can run it against any web page, and most of the suggestions will in some way make your site more efficient and therefore more eco-friendly

Make improvements

Once you enter your sites address into the calculator, they'll provide details about how much energy you are using and tips to improve your sites rating. If you need any help with understanding the results, or how to make the suggested improvements, we can help, just get in touch below
