We’re delighted to announce that we’ve received the Climate-Positive Website Accreditation for our company website from the Eco Friendly Web Alliance (EFWA) for the second year.
The internet has a significant carbon footprint, contributing to 3.7% of global emissions - more than the aviation industry!
Sustainability is at the core of our business, and this accreditation recognises our digital sustainability leadership by taking measures to reduce the carbon footprint of our website and using green energy to power it. As part of the criteria we also take responsibility for our website’s carbon footprint each year through high integrity, science-backed Gold Standard or Verified Carbon Standard projects that remove carbon, restore biodiversity and improve livelihoods.
Our website on average emits less than 1 gram of CO2 per page view, uses green energy and takes accountability for our carbon emissions, going beyond the estimated carbon footprint for the year. The carbon footprint of the internet is growing exponentially, and we’re proud to be part of the solution. The Eco Friendly Web Alliance is working with organisations around the world to help them lead the way to a more sustainable digital world.
