Website Digital Carbon Footprints

The Internet is Not Carbon Free

Do you know how much greenhouse gas your website produces?

It’s probably more than you expect.

But you can do something about it.

The Internet and the Climate

If the Internet were a nation, it would be the 4th biggest contributor of carbon emissions on the planet.

Top CO2 Producing Nations

  1. China (10 billion)
  2. USA (5 billion)
  3. India (2.5 billion)
  4. The Internet (1.7 billion)
  5. Russia (1.6 billion)

Website Carbon

Exponential Growth

Every web page generates carbon emissions. Some more, some less.

Individually, these might be small, yet across an entire website they add up to something much more significant that grows with your traffic.

Based on complexity and use, some pages might vastly outweigh others. So how do you know where to start your carbon reduction efforts?

This is just one area that Digital Carbon Online can help.


The Carbon Impact of This Site

According to this website produces less carbon emissions than most.

Yet, it still produces 0.15g of CO2 every time it loads. At that rate,10,000 visits per month would have the same CO2 impact as boiling water for 2,412 cups of tea.

That is just one page.

What about a site with 1000s pages?

Hint: It’s a lot more.
