Why you should offset your website in 2021
Every time someone visits your website, it is contributing to global warming. Offsetting your website’s carbon footprint is not only fast and easy, but good for your business – and for our planet.
Websites are run on servers that require power 24/7. The electricity required to power a website releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and accelerate global warming.
Your website is part of the problem
The internet is consuming over 416 TWh of electricity each year, which is more than the energy consumption of a country the size of the UK.
Electricity consumption releases CO2 into the atmosphere, which is a leading cause for global warming.
Electricity is consumed every time someone visits your website. The CO2 released by a single visit is on average 1-2 grams, which equals around 200 kilograms per year for a website with 10 000 monthly visitors.
For context, the average individual living in the EU contributes only four times as much, at about 1000 kilograms of CO2 per year, including air travel.
