Have you considered the carbon footprint of your website?

A few months ago we were shocked to find that our website produced more carbon than 64% of web pages tested by websitecarbon.com. After working with our web developers Fat Beehive, we have now switched to a 100% renewable energy host and made some behind the scenes improvements (without affecting your experience of using the site) so that we are now producing less carbon than 71% of web pages tested.

This summary of actions, produced by Fat Beehive for CIEEM, sets out the changes we have made and will continue to work on to reduce the environmental impact of running our website. We hope that this will inspire others to tackle some of the perhaps lesser-known sources of greenhouse gas emissions in business operations, without sacrificing the experience of customers and other users.
