web design - sustainable and professional

IF THE INTERNET WAS A COUNTRY, IT WOULD HAVE RANGE 6 OF THE LIST OF THE COUNTRIES WITH THE BIGGEST AMOUNT ON CO₂-EMISSIONS.

Computing power, cooling and uninterupted powersupply of thousands of servers cost heaps of energy: IT consumpted 47 billion kwh in 2017 in germany alone. This rate is increasing with time.

 

WHICH IS MY APPROACH TO A ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY INTERNET?

 

... my approach ...

Sustainable design

We are examining the cause for the consistently increasing amount of data and looking for an approach to reduce and optimize data traffic. IT has to make sure to know their responsibility and to work out and fight the causes. For instance by a well-thought-of conception, sustainable design and smart development of energy-saving web sites.

Sustainable software

Using exclusively open source software, we follow the main thought that software has to be free to use by everyone and also viewable and controllable by the public.

This includes hosting components (Linux, MySQL,...) as well as content management system (contao). Contao is highly professionell, sustainable and there is a very good  german and english community.

Sustainable hosting

Sustainable hosting means:

The host uses green energy delivered from a company that actively supports the spread of renewable energy. Server capacities are provided fitting to the needs of the customers, avoiding unused capacities and energy-consumption.

Energy-efficient web design has more than environmental aspects

Energy-efficient web design has high performance, as contents is reduced to the necessary measure. We have a critical look at intensive ressources like videos and pictures, text will be short and focussing on information.  Energy-efficient web design is user-friendly, having the target group in mind. There is a clear structure and short ways and therefor is fun. Energy-efficient web design is search engines optimized, it helps user and search engine equally to find the required information.
