In this Voices.Earth podcast interview, we speak with Dryden Williams, founder of EcoPing.Earth, which provides tools and reports with key insights and actions to improve your company’s website carbon emissions and performance.
When it comes to using the Internet for our professional and personal lives, we often don’t realize the massive amount of energy and carbon emissions that come about from accessing some of our favorite websites.
In fact, the average website produces 1.76g of CO2 for every page view, and a website with 100,000 page views per month emits 2,112kg of CO2 every year. In addition, shaving off a single kilobyte in a file that is being loaded on 2 million websites reduces CO2 emissions by an estimated 2950 kg per month.
Thankfully, EcoPing.Earth is leading the way in helping to make the Internet more sustainable by offering critical tools and reports that provide key insights and actions to improve any company’s website carbon emissions. The solution also allows you to compare your website’s carbon emissions with competitors, and offers insights and actions for enhancing overall web performance.
The company chose to use a .Earth domain because it fully aligns with its mission of helping to save our planet by reducing the carbon footprint of the Internet.
“To start with, .Earth sounds really nice for what we are trying to do,” said Dryden. “It also allows us to put our money where our mouth is, and do something positive for the Earth. It really incorporates our mission to reduce the carbon footprint of the Internet. .Earth also makes me think of the bigger picture and gives me focus on why I am doing this in the first place.”
