Green Web Development

Readying the web for the low carbon future

If the internet was a country, it would be the 7th largest polluter*

Websites and apps are run by servers, which are essentially computers running all day everyday. The electricity that powers them come from the grid, which is currently only powered in small part by renewables. Instead of waiting for the grid be 100% clean, we must start reducing the power consumption of websites today.

Why is my website so polluting?


The reality is that many websites are not built with sustainability in mind. As a result, they are typically heavier than it needs to be. To illustrate one of many causes: lines of code that are only needed in one page, are loaded on all pages of a CMS-based website. The more things need to load, the more computational power the servers need, therefore more electricity being used.

To see an estimate of how much emissions are coming from your site, visit websitecarbon.com. Fun fact: this webpage you’re reading emits 0.18g of CO2, cleaner than 86% of other pages tested.
