Online sustainability

A Dutch media website nu.nl has to process almost 800 million pageviews per month. Just trough their website, they are responsible for a carbon emission of at least 31 million kilograms per year.

My research proves they could save 29 million kilograms of carbon emission on a yearly basis by using better web-techniques.

Let's make it a better place!

Aviation industry

In total, the internet is already producing more carbon emissions than the aviation industry. That's why I focus on online sustainability. With just as direct an impact as solar panels.

  • Direct hosting savings;
  • Longer battery lifetime for mobile users;
  • Less carbon emission on server side as well as client side (in your visitors' screen);
  • Unlike solar panels, no differences in the visual end result;
  • Business credibility as well as sitespeed and conversion.

I help companies with sustainable ambitions, reducing the carbon emission of their online presence

Unleashing my sitespeed and performance knowledge results in fast loading and low carbon emission websites. I am already working with local as well as non-local and utility companies to improve their online sustainability. If you get track of any events about online sustainability or organizing one, do let me know! I would love to share my knowledge as a speaker or a guest.

How did we get to the above conclusion? By simply filling in your website and the amount of monthly visitors into websitecarbon.com.

There is really nothing more to it! Maybe you do have green hosting already- the automated test may be wrong about this. But even when you contracted green hosting, there is still carbon emission in play due to the resources your website is transferring and loading into the visitor's browser..

Want to talk about sustainability?

Really, it never was so easy doing it yourself! But if you really want to, do get in touch to let me do an audit and providing you with recommendations.

To get you started, it's like basic optimization for performance:

  • use less CMS as well as JavaScript plugins;
  • resize your images;
  • compress and lazyload them.

Request an audit anyway!
