Measurable Goals

1

To reduce our carbon emissions from operations (CO2/£ revenue) by at least 10% every year and become a truly zero carbon business by 2026

2

To reduce the CO2/page view of all new websites by 20% compared to the previous website or nearest competitor (whichever has lower emissions)

3

To increase the proportion of our client’s websites using web hosting powered by renewable sources to 50% by 2020 and 100% by 2026
