Carbon neutralization of websites
The first step you can do for your environment with our help is that you offset the carbon emission of your website. Every website emits carbon dioxide due to electricity consumption deriving from the electricity consumption of the website’s server, that of the visitors’ computers which are running while the site is being visited and that of the network which provides the connection.
First, we calculate the carbon emission of your website based on data given by you and stored in international databases, e. g. an average search on Google generates 7 grams of carbon-dioxide. Here we give you some average examples: if your website has less than 10 thousand searches per month, it emits approx. 2 tCO2e (ton carbon-dioxide equivalent which is the measure of carbon footprint); if the number of searches is between 50 thousand and 300 thousand monthly then the website emits 7 tCO2e; and if your page has monthly searches between 500 thousand and 1 million then it emits 21 tCO2e.
This emission cannot be avoided but it can be neutralized by supporting green projects. These already implemented projects generate energy, products or conduct their services in a way where barely any or no CO2 or any other greenhouse gases are emitted. The reforestation projects bind traceable amount of CO2. These projects are certified by rating agencies such as TÜV NORD, TÜV SÜD or BÜRO VERITAS.
Emissions can be neutralized by purchasing and retiring so-called carbon credits equal to the amount of your website’s emission. Practically, it means that the operation of the website becomes neutral through offsetting thus its negative effect on the environment is reduced to zero.
