Powering a Greener Future

We commit to producing low carbon websites. We do this through hosting via a 100% green powered platform, using a lightweight CMS and building a super efficient front end to reduce resource consumption and improve load speeds.

Building a website with low carbon goals in mind is one thing, but the best news is that we can improve the sustainability of any website with some clever clean-up techniques. So whether you’re all-in for the clean and green approach, or just want to optimise your current site, we’re experts in sustainable web design.

Low Carbon Web Design

It’s never been easier to lower your website carbon consumption.

Knowledge is power, and it’s always good to have a benchmark to start from. We generally advise that pages should aim for under a gram of carbon per visit and we can help you achieve this by compressing image and files sizes, optimising videos or animation and generally clearing out the clutter.

01

A low carbon website needs a host of smart fixes. We start with the design and architecture - minimising image size and data-heavy graphics without ever compromising on style. A deliberately straightforward layout reduces aimless browsing and we use caching at all levels to eliminate unnecessary computation. Finally, the amazing CloudFlare ensures the performance of all our UK hosted sites is the same wherever the user is in the world.

Next, the development of the site is key. We use a minimal ‘headless’ WordPress CMS to run the back end, whilst the visible pages use modern, efficient protocols, only loading data when needed - happily resulting in a speedy and efficient browsing experience. This slimmed down build also makes your site agile - both in its ability to display on a number of devices, but also pull data from a virtually limitless range of sources.

Finally, our sites are hosted with Krystal, the UK’s greenest hosting provider, powered by 100% renewable energy. It’s even a non-profit organisation meaning any surplus is reinvested into protecting the planet. Just like us, they’re committed tech savvy environmentalists who are focused on producing the best product whilst supporting the environment. We think they’re fab - and we know you will too.
