How to create a sustainable website

If you're here, you probably don't need to be convinced of the reasons why a sustainable website is important. So, this resource is here to explain how you can create a sustainable website.

In this series of articles, we delve into how your website's design, code, hosting, and the content you add to it can add (often unnecessarily) to its energy consumption – and what you can do to save energy.

We hope you found some useful stuff in the articles, and have been able to put some of it into action! There're also a couple more things you can do:

1. Choose to work with environmentally responsible suppliers – for example, your web agency 😉

Every Supercool website project has a personalised 'Decarbonisation Strategy' so our clients can be sure that the creation of their website is creating as little negative impact as possible. (Primarily by using carbon reduction strategies, with the rest off-set with tree planting/conservation).

A sustainable supplier not only says they care about the environment but takes action – with their product or service, and their business processes – to be part of a more sustainable future.

2. Plant trees!

We plant trees for every new project we launch, so the design and build is carbon negative. But your website continues to use energy every day. (There are cheaper ways to offset emissions, but we like planting trees near clients!) Using www.websitecarbon.com you can find out your website's carbon footprint; and it'll tell you the number of trees you need to plant to offset that amount.
