Is your website Eco Friendly?

Did you know, Realist websites are powered by clean, green, carbon-neutral electricity? Our hosting services operate using green electricity providers who generate clean energy right here in the UK. So how do we do this, and why should you be thinking about the carbon footprint of your website?

Why is Eco-Friendly Website Hosting Important for Businesses?

For modern businesses, it’s more important than ever to be eco-friendly. One way businesses can reduce their eco-footprint is by choosing eco-friendly website hosting. Web hosting uses a lot of energy to keep servers running and data centres cooled, so it’s important to choose a provider that offsets their carbon emissions.

“The IT industry accounts for more than 2% of global emissions, on par with the aviation industry. So it’s vital to reduce your emissions wherever it is possible.”

Not only is eco-friendly web hosting good for the environment, but it’s also good for business. Customers are increasingly interested in sustainability, so choosing an eco-friendly web host can help you attract and retain customers.

How do We Provide Green Website Hosting?

Our hosting services are powered by renewable energy supplied by Ecotricity. Ecotricity is a business that specialises in renewable energy. They use sustainable resources like solar and wind power to generate electricity, which is then used to power people’s homes and businesses. In addition to providing clean energy, Ecotricity also helps to fight climate change by offsetting carbon emissions, providing planning and investment for new wind and solar farms, and even supplying Smart Meters to homes and businesses.

Basically, they’re doing everything they can to make the world a better place. And we think that’s pretty cool.

So if you’re looking to ‘green up’ your business, eco-friendly website hosting is a great place to start. If you’re wondering how you can make sure your website is powered sustainably, all Realist Digital website clients enjoy clean, green hosting. And you won’t even have to do anything.
