We started our climate changing journey in April 2022 and as we approach our 1 year anniversary we wanted to share some of the great insights into the work we have been able to complete behind the scenes thanks to the support from our amazing clients.
eckhoMedia has now funded and planted 550 trees around the world, supported 19 global projects and offset 8.75 tonnes of carbon, that’s not bad for our first year and we continue to do more.
When we pledged to become a climate conscious web design agency we set realistic goals and we are proud to announce that we have smashed all of our goals we set out to achieve.
How and why are we doing this?
Each month we plant a minimum of 20 trees, then for each client that hosts their website with us we plant a further number of trees depending on their hosting package, the bigger the plan the more server resources are used and the more carbon offsetting is required.
What else are we doing?
We have developed our climate strategy inline with our day to day business model so we can do our bit to keep as eco friendly as possible.
At eckhoMedia we have agreed to the following:
- Build sustainable websites that are fast loading to reduce server load which in turn reduces carbon being generated
- Organise online meetings via Zoom to reduce unnecessary travelling to meet with clients, we do prefer face to face and there are times when we still need to but we keep this to a minimum
- We use green energy suppliers for electricity in our office
- Nothing is ever printed to avoid wasting paper and electricity
