A relatively new trend (but one that is growing) is an environmental consciousness to web design practices. Expect web design companies to explain how they might embrace eco-friendly design principles for your website. Expect optimising your website’s performance for reduced energy consumption and implementing sustainable hosting solutions, contributing to a greener digital footprint.
Here’s some examples:
Choose a web hosting provider that utilises renewable energy sources (or are committed to reducing their carbon footprint).
Streamline your website’s performance by reducing unnecessary code, compressing images, and optimising files.
Less is more! Simplifying design elements, using whitespace effectively, and reducing unnecessary graphics can lead to a lighter website that requires fewer resources to load.
Implement energy-efficient technologies such as lazy loading of images.
Sustainable Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)
Opt for CDNs that focus on reducing energy usage and employ efficient data routing to deliver website content.
