SUSTAINABLE WEBSITE DESIGN

Designing Low Carbon Websites in WordPress

Because There Is No Planet B

The excitement of COP26 is still in the air, and we all witnessed the UK taking a leading role against global warming with its net zero target by 2050.  

Carbon emission is becoming everyone’s concern. Having a net zero website is a powerful way to show that you are a responsible business. It is your chance to convince your customers that with you, they too are making a responsible choice.

Low Carbon Website Design

When making a low carbon website we rethink design, user experience, and web development as a whole. We build on WordPress – a CMS that is versatile and adaptable. The result is a light but high impact website that uses less energy to function. We create it with care to put you on the map, along with other pioneering businesses who lead the way to change.

Green Website Hosting

Websites are energy intensive, with a server working behind every webpage all day, every day.

Picking the right green host for your  business can be confusing and risky. There is a lot to consider, from the source of energy they use to reliability and the services they provide, such as caching, CDN or static pages. 

Our in-depth shortlisting process can find those hosts with credible green claims and services that fit all the needs of your website. A host that runs on renewables with the right settings, will get you far on your low-emission journey.

Erase Your Carbon Presence by Offsetting

Carbon offsetting is often seen as a cover-up for carbon emission, facing away from the responsibility of making a real change.  

Currently no web technology is truly zero carbon. When the carbon emission of your website has been minimised to as little as possible, offsetting the remaining carbon is the final good deed to be done for our planet. And the only way for a net zero website!

Our selected few schemes are there to make a meaningful change to the climate, and the habitats as well. Pick your choice!
