Website Sustainability

An Integral Part of a
Green Digital Economy

The concept of sustainability has gained substantial recognition in recent years, and rightfully so. In an era where digitalization is pervasive, website sustainability has emerged as a key aspect of the digital economy.

But what exactly is website sustainability?

Website sustainability pertains to the design and operation of websites in a manner that minimizes their environmental impact. This includes factors such as the energy efficiency of web servers, the optimization of data transmission, and the mindful use of resources during web development processes.

Why Does Website Sustainability Matter?

The significance of website sustainability lies in its potential contribution to a more sustainable planet. Every digital interaction, including web browsing, uses energy, which often comes from non-renewable sources and contributes to carbon emissions. With millions of websites and billions of users globally, the cumulative environmental impact of the web is substantial.

Moreover, the power consumed by data centers — responsible for hosting websites — is predicted to account for 3.2% of the total worldwide carbon emissions by 2025, surpassing the airline industry. Consequently, adopting sustainable web design and operation practices can significantly reduce the internet’s carbon footprint.

Freestyle Internet can play a crucial role in driving website sustainability. As a progressive web development company, Freestyle Internet is committed to creating websites that are not just user-friendly but also environmentally friendly.

Our development practices prioritize optimization and efficiency, ensuring that websites use as little energy as possible. We use green hosting, which uses renewable energy or offsets carbon emissions, and we streamline our sites to minimize data transfer.

Freestyle Internet also supports the idea of “sustainable UX,” ensuring the visual design of the website promotes efficient use of resources. For example, dark mode design can reduce screen energy consumption, especially on OLED screens.
