Websites consume electricity – and a lot of it. 416.2 TWh per year, to be exact. To put this in context, that amounts to roughly 2% of global CO2 emissions, or roughly the same as the entire aviation industry.

We are pioneers in the field of reducing website energy consumption. It is critical to walk the walk, and we are now in a position to make improvements.
