While remaining largely hidden from sight, the Internet uses an enormous amount of energy and has quickly become a major source of carbon emissions. With no end in sight to this growth, we need to take action to curb these emissions.
When you visit a website, binge watch a Netflix show, or tweet, data must be transferred from the site’s servers, across the internet infrastructure to your computer or phone. Transferring data uses energy, and unfortunately, using energy means burning fossil fuels.
Estimating your sites carbon footprint
Our calculation is intended to over-estimate the energy used by your website. This assures that we are, in-fact, covering the the extent of your website’s energy use in our calculation.
We track and analyze over a dozen metrics to estimate your site's carbon footprint at a global scale.
Page weight + size
Server/Hosting Provider Footprint
Power grid location
Design Optimization Insights
The average web page increased 32% in 2015 alone. The larger the page, the larger the carbon footprint. We help you cut down your website's bloat.
Leaner web pages not only furthers our goal of lowering your carbon footprint, but also enhances performance and SEO, and drives sales and engagement for you.
Encourage browser caching
Implement & utilize a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
Usage of proper image formats

Re-evaluate third party widgets & code
Transferring To a Green Web Host
Before we start minimizing your site’s carbon footprint through design and optimization, we will transfer your hosting service to our servers.
After optimizing your sites design and moving to solar powered hosting, your site will still have a carbon footprint. To account for that, we will neutralize the remainder of your websites carbon footprint by investing in offset projects.
You will get to decide what projects you would like to fund for your offsets and you will be able to monitor the project as it progresses.
