Did you know that websites have a carbon footprint?
According to WebsiteCarbon.com, the internet consumes a lot of electricity. 416.2TWh per year to be precise.
To give you some perspective, that’s more than the entire United Kingdom.
From data centres to transmission networks to the billions of connected devices that we hold in our hands, it is all consuming electricity, and in turn producing carbon emissions equal to or greater than the global aviation industry.
WebsiteCarbon.com have developed the first methodology for calculating the carbon emissions attributed to a website and their free website carbon calculator will help raise awareness and inspire a more sustainable internet.
If you want help doing a more detailed analysis or need assistance reducing emissions from your web project, their team would be happy to discuss your requirements (see below).
