COFME’s website produces less CO2 than 50% of the URLs tested by its hosting provider, minimizing its carbon footprint.
The carbon footprint of a website is the amount of carbon emissions generated by website operations, including server power consumption, data transfer and user device power consumption. Due to the intense processing power required to load a page, each visit to a website emits 1.76 g. of CO2 on average. There are several ways to reduce this carbon footprint leading to energy sustainable websites.
Choosing a hosting provider that uses renewable energy is an effective way to reduce the carbon footprint. This involves data processing centers close to the user, servers with the latest technology, or the prevention of unwanted bots that, when visiting the site, produce intense and spurious energy consumption.
From the site owner’s point of view, fast load times, image compression, use of simple fonts, and file optimization are ways to minimize the carbon footprint. COFME’s website emits only 0.64 g. of CO2 per visit and has a load time of 2.8s.
Green hosting and sustainable website are COFME’s lines of action to reduce its carbon footprint, thus contributing to the health of the planet.
The COFME Group consists of seven Spanish leading manufacturers in the field of electrical equipment: CELO, DAISALUX, SACI, SALICRU, SODECA, SOFAMEL and SOLERA.
