Sustainable Web Design
The internet has an undeniable environmental impact on the world, representing roughly one billion tons of greenhouse gases a year! 5forests takes sustainability seriously, and we’re working towards reducing our impact and yours. We do this from the ground up with green power architecture, carbon neutral technology partners, modern web design, and intelligent development choices. Proof that sustainable web design isn’t a hinderance, it’s the future.
Sustainability is a “must”, not a “want”
Sustainable web design starts with an understanding of how the technology we use impacts the environment, and how early decisions can mean hefty results (for better or for worse!).
5forests can work with you to develop a digital plan that reduces the overall energy consumption of your site and optimizes its carbon footprint. Years of experience in modern web design, plus our own sustainability measures, provide a tried and true benchmark for sustainable choices. We achieve these goals through methods such as:
- Renewable energy powered green web hosting
- Carbon neutral technology partners
- Efficient site architecture and planning
- Sustainable design practices
- Meaningful user experiences, not distractions
- Impact testing and improvement
- Carbon offsets and tree planting
