6 benefits you get with green design

… You get super fast loading times.

… Your users get around easily.

… You SEO get’s a great boost.

… The trust into your brand rises.

… You get more users (due to SEO, usability, reputation) that love to buy your products.

… Your digital footprint gets reduced to a bare minimum.

What’s the web’s footprint?

Every mouse click starts a dialogue with data centers, that run 24/7 on energy and are cooled down with huge amounts of water. Telecommunication networks and end-user devices add to the massive needs of energy and emit all-together more than 830 million tons of CO2 per year, estimates rising.*

What’s a green website?

Your website, app or other kind of digital service is green, if you run it on renewable energy, you have very little data to load, you chose green digital tools for your work and you talk via your website, Social Media and offline activities about all the sustainability efforts within your brand or business.

With green design you’re website gets a boost in terms of findability, ranking, super minimal loading times, very small page weight and happy users. Why? Because sustainable webdesign equals super minimal data load.

My vision …

… is a green, climate friendly web with happy users, super fast websites, healthy and loving communication, high accessibility, diversity, green patterns instead of black patterns and brands and designers that love their digital products and jobs. For the planet.

FAQ

What’s the impact of green UX/UI design?

The world wide web has a big impact when it comes to energy consumption, the usage of water for cooling data centres and the emission of CO2 that comes with it. The average of a website is 1,76g CO2/page view*. Mulitiply that with roughly 10.000 page views every month. Suddenly those super small numbers get quite big. For just one website. And there are millions of websites out there.

How much does it cost?

.. Gaining knowledge and setting up new structures costs effort and some money, but

.. Switching to a hoster with sustainable energy costs the same as “normal” ones, loading times are heavily reduced which means faster services and as studies show more interaction and conversion, which means even more income, green is the new future and becomes more and more important for purchase decisions, gaining knowledge in this area still means being first mover. That’s super valuable!

What are the benefits?

Sure, ecological sustainability and a smaller footprint are two of the obvious reasons. But next to that you get amazing benefits such as faster loading times, better usability, findability, SEO and reputation. That concludes into happier and most often more users, that trust your brand and buy your products.

How can loading times be reduced by green UX/UI design?

Green design means reducing data load, requests and scripts that are integrated on the website (which doesn’t mean boring design). Less data and an optimized technical structure concludes directly into less loading times and therefore into a super fast website.

Who’s addressed?

Everyone! All businesses and brands are welcome to join the journey whether you are already a deeply sustainable brand, startup, self-employed person, freelancer, initiative or NGO or whether you are in the process of becoming such. We all started somewhere.

“My boss will never ever commit to this.”

Let’s see… Sometimes higher hierarchy steps can be tricky to get on board but honestly, this is one of the easy ones. It all comes down to money, reputation and joy of use. And green web design covers all of that by needing very little money while integrating and brings in more money due to better usability, findability and conversion.
