How it works
The membership includes a sticker for your website, a certification and a backlink from Climaider. The membership is valid for one year.
To estimate the CO2 footprint of a website we have to make some estimations. We start by finding the data usage of a website. Taking Climaider as an example, we use a total of 1.7 megabytes on a load of our frontpage. This is of course not the only data transferred in a normal visit.
You click around the page and explore! We take a value of ten clicks and arrive at a whopping 17 megabytes. Now, combining estimates for total operating costs of the internet with estimates of the total amount of data transferred, we get a figure of 1.8 kWh/GB. Combining this number with an international estimate for the CO2e released by providing one kilowatt of power, 475 grams of CO2 equivalent for a kilowatt-hour, we arrive at a final number: 8.5 grams of CO2e for 1 megabyte of data usage. Or, 145 grams of CO2 per visit to your webpage!
By providing your monthly visitors, we can calculate the costs of CO2 offsetting your website!
