Did you know that global digitization produces about 3.7% of global carbon emissions? This is similar to the carbon emissions produced by the airline industry. Data centres around the globe consume about 1% of the global electricity consumption. An average website produces around 1.76 gm CO2eq for every page viewed. The increasing trend in global emissions requires companies to adopt sustainable alternatives in their business practices. One of the many companies playing its role in minimizing the climatic impact of web hosting is – GreenGeeks.
