Eco-friendly websites

The internet contributes to 3.7% of global carbon emissions, which is more than the aviation industry.  We work with you to produce websites that have a digital carbon rating of under 1 gram of carbon used per page load at least.

This is achieved with a blend of clever design and development techniques such as colour styles, font choice, optimisation and green hosting with the ultimate goal of preventing unnecessary carbon emissions and contributing to a cleaner, greener internet for all.

Optimisation

There are many elements to consider when planning a ‘green’ website, and you can do this from the start, or after the website has been built.  Some of the areas to consider would be:

  • Optimise images and file sizes
  • Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN)
  • Use green / sustainable web hosting
  • Reduce plug-ins where possible
  • Apply accessible web design principles
  • Reduce heavy animations or video

Website healthchecks

As part of our service offering, Chameleon Studios can provide a comprehensive website healthcheck to see how your website is performing and how it can be improved and ‘go green’.

This website healthcheck service covers a wide range of topics, which covers areas such as SEO, hosting reviews, optimisation recommendations, CDN setup, functionality audits, code and plug-in audits, image optimisation and many others.

These findings can then be applied to your current website, or used as a starting point for a website redesign.

Make a difference

Every single website has the opportunity to make the difference

Measure

Website optimisation starts with measuring current performance, metrics and website construction methods, and reviewing the results.

This information guides us when making recommendations for your website, the options available to us, and what likely impact these will have on site speed, low carbon efficiencies, green hosting and ongoing SEO results.

Optimise

The optimisation process involves a step by step approach, looking at at the key elements of the website.

Areas such as image compression, possible us of CDNs, colours used, hosting platform, external code dependencies and steamlining the system where possible.  All these improvements have a big impact on the overal site, helping you achieve under 1g of carbon produced per page.

The end results will deliver a super fast and efficient website that meets all your business and ethical objectives.

You can then promote and inspire other companies or peers to adopt a similar approach and benefit from our optimisation process, with the knowledge that you are doing everything you can to make your website green and sustainable.

We are thrilled with the website

“Our site typically receives around 50,000 visits per month, and is arguably our most important marketing asset. We had three objectives for the site: to bring our brand to life for parents searching for the right school for their child; to provide quick and easy access to the information our current parents and students need; and to create a CMS that was simple and flexible for Perse staff.”
