Sustainable Web Development

The Internet accounts for 3.7% of the world’s CO2 emissions, a figure that is expected to double in 2025. Fortunately, we have the techniques to do something about it – today.

Paths to a sustainable website

The first step on the road to a sustainable website is to measure the current climate footprint. We analyse selected pages with several tools and provide you with specific recommendations for improvements.

Pictures and video are low-hanging fruit. We can typically reduce file sizes by 50-80% without visible loss of quality. In addition to a lower climate impact, your visitors will have a better user experience.

WordPress can do just about everything. It is almost too easy to add code for a webshop, newsletters and 13 fonts, where only two are actually used. We clean that up, for lower energy consumption and better performance.

Data centers consume enormous amounts of power. We investigate whether your current web hotel uses green power and is happy to host your WordPress website at reputable Oderland in Sweden.

Independent pre- and post-measurements ensure you a documented reduction in your website’s climate footprint, which can be used internally in your organization or externally in your marketing.

According to the Website Carbon Calculator, SustainableWeb produces 0.07g CO2 per page view.
