Following Vice PresidentIn a post a few months ago about the environmental impact of NFTs, and the ongoing discussion around it, we found ourselves wondering about the carbon footprint of websites and the Internet, which most of us use on a daily basis.

Have you ever wondered about the carbon footprint of a website? The website Carbon shows you exactly what the environmental impact of any website is, so we thought we’d test it android authorizationsite, as well as some other popular sites, and dive into the details.

  • But first, what is this all about websites with a carbon footprint?
  • The Internet uses a lot of electricity, which is 16.2TWh per year, which is more than the whole of the United Kingdom.
  • gizmodo Also published an interesting article about the instability of the Internet.
  • and 2019 report shift project showed that digital technologies are responsible for 4% of greenhouse gas emissions, increasing their energy consumption by 9% per year.
  • According to the website Carbon, “The average web page tested generates approximately 0.5 g of CO2 per page view. For a website with 10,000 monthly page views, this is 60 kg of CO2 per year.”
  • There are plenty of ways to make websites more sustainable, from SEO optimization to reducing videos and images to a minimum, or switching to a green web host.
  • Simply: The more complex a website, the more energy it takes to load, and the larger its carbon footprint.

How was our site?

Android Authority Website Exam Result

Hurray! Our website was cleaner than 76% of the web pages we tested. Not going bad.

According to the results, in a year, with 10,000 monthly page views, our site produces the following:

  • 44.52 kg CO2 Equivalent: This is 0.3 the equivalent weight of sumo wrestlers and the CO2 equivalent of boiling water for 6,033 cups of tea.
  • 48 billion bubbles.
  • Three Trees: Our site emits the same amount of carbon that three trees absorb in a year.
  • 103kWh Energy: Enough power to drive an electric car 662km.

You’ll find more information on sustainable skateboards, e-bikes, scooters, solar panels and more at Green Authority.

What about some of the other big sites?

Worst Website For Carbon Emissions

Wired UK There was a good piece last year about the impact websites have on the planet.

  • ,According to data from the HTTP Archive, websites have only gotten less efficient over the years: Today, the average web page weighs around 2MB, compared to less than 500KB in 2010.
  • ,A simple, stripped-back website like Low Tech Magazine produces only 0.24g of CO2 per page view; In contrast, a site with video autoplay features, such as 11 Coffee & Co, generates a whopping 10.08g of CO2 per page view. (The website for Elon and Kimbal Musk’s foundation – consisting of seven lines of text on a white background – is one of the cleanest on the web, producing only 0.39 kg of CO2 per year.)”

We took a quick look at some other sites and the results are pretty interesting:

Apple Website Carbon Footprint
  • Facebook is cleaner than 90% of the sites tested, producing only 0.10g of CO2 and 11.86kg of CO2 equivalent for each visit (with 10,000 monthly page views a year).
  • Perhaps shockingly (though we’re sure all those flashy images of vehicles have something to do with it) Tesla’s site was dirty on more than 84% of the web pages tested, producing 2.71g of CO2 for each trip and 10,000 monthly page views in a year, producing 324.75kg of CO2 equivalent — tthat same weight 2.17 Sumo wrestlers and boiling water as much CO2 44,004 cups of tea. I like tea, but this is a very,
  • Both Samsung and Apple disappointed, with over 54% of the web pages Samsung tested came across as dirty, producing 0.52 grams of CO2 (62.81) per visit.CO2 equivalent kg per year), And more than 50% of the web pages Apple tested are dirty, producing 0.47g of CO2 or 56.76g of CO2 per visit. produceskg of CO2 equivalent per year (nor use green hosting).
