A portion of the emissions a website creates is generated by YOU. If you're not using renewable energy, carbon dioxide emissions will be one of the consequences.
This is one of the reasons why the Nest has chosen CREATE as its Web Host partner. A business committed to reducing the environmental impact of shopping online with a three fold approach :
1) Reducing their emissions and those of their providers, creating speed efficiencies through well optimised, faster and more responsive websites.
2) Investing in Carbon Reduction schemes (just over 1000 tonnes so far), which is a form of carbon offsetting, ensuring carbon emissions are actually removed and reduced, not just transferred.
