Embracing Sustainability Web Hosting

In today’s digital world, where every click and scroll leaves a footprint on the environment, the call for sustainable practices within the tech industry grows louder. Recognising the urgency of this global challenge, Ignite Web Development takes a pioneering step towards environmental stewardship by embracing Green Web Hosting.

The internet consumes a whole lot of electricity. To be precise, 416.2TWH per year. That’s more than the entire United Kingdom. From data centres to transmission networks to the billions of connected devices that we hold in our hands, it is all consuming electricity, and in turn producing carbon emissions equal to or greater than the global aviation industry. That’s truly scary!

Using Website Carbon Calculator, we found out that our home page achieves a carbon rating of C. This is cleaner than 59% of all web pages globally. Only 0.38g of CO2 is produced every time someone visits our home page. It’s good, but we could do better! Here are some figures that might open your eyes. Over the year, with 10,000+ monthly page views, ignitewebdevelopment.com produces 46.18kg of CO2 equivalent. That’s as much CO2 as boiling water for 6,258 cups of tea. 121 kWh of energy as much CO2 as 10,044 full charges of an average smartphone, 49 billion bubbles (That’s a lot of bubbles popped!) It emits the amount of carbon that 3 trees absorb in a year and 121kWH of energy, that’s enough electricity to drive an electric car 771km. Those are some eye-opening stats.

We believe that innovation and responsibility go hand in hand. As a up and coming web development company, we understand the immense energy consumption associated with hosting websites and digital services. That’s why we work with Green Hosting partner to provide not only our website, but also our client’s websites.
