What is an eco-responsible website with Ingenius?
An eco-designed Wordpress website aims to limit its impact on the environment by reducing the use of resources as much as possible. At Ingenius, we implement specific optimizations such as static to limit resources to the maximum. As a general rule, it is better to have a site that consumes as few resources as possible than a site that consumes a lot of energy on a server falsely called "green".

What is an eco-responsible website?
Web eco-design is an ecological approach that consists of optimising the environmental impact of a website.
This is because website data is stored on servers all over the world, which run at full capacity 24 hours a day and require giant cooling systems. Such energy consumption has a real impact on the planet and very few data centres run on green energy.
It is therefore essential to consider the ecological impact of a website and to take the necessary actions to make it ecologically responsible so as not to add to the ecological debt already in place.

Ecological actions to implement to have an eco responsible website
An eco-designed website aims to limit its impact on the environment by minimising the use of resources. Some actions can be taken to make a website eco-designed.
The use of site caching
Ideal for minimising data transfer and queries from your site's web server. The data from your site is downloaded to the visitor's computer and when they return to your site, they will reuse the data on their computer instead of querying your server data again.
Optimisation of the site's images
A website does not need to display heavy high definition images that increase the loading time of your site and therefore degrade the ecological impact of your site. Image compression is necessary to improve the user experience and thus lighten your site and its environmental impact. Ingenius uses the best Wordpress image compression tools from the beginning of your website design.
Choosing an eco-responsible web host
Between data centres, servers and cooling systems that consume a lot of electrical resources, using a hosting company that uses renewable energy to operate is a wise and ecological choice. Ingenius uses the services of an ecologically responsible hosting company for your website, which is concerned about its ecological impact.
The choice of website design
Ingenius favours the use of a minimalist design in order not to burden your site's bandwidth usage. By taking your requirements into account, the agency strives to offer you visual solutions that are less ecologically demanding. Among other things, this includes :
- propose a dark mode if possible
- some photo formats should be avoided (png, jpg, ...)
- limit the use of videos and instead focus on light visuals
Making your site more accessible
Not only will you be doing good for the planet, but you will also be helping to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities (visual or hearing). In addition, Google gives greater prominence to websites that have made an effort to improve accessibility. This includes making your site mobile-friendly, increasing the contrast between the text and the background of your site and increasing the size of the typography.
What are the main benefits of eco-design for a website?
In the digital age, where there are now more than 1.7 billion websites (according to the 2019 annual statistics from NetCraft and the Worldometers algorithm), it's time to ask yourself how you can contribute to reducing your ecological impact. Here are 4 reasons to convince you why it is urgent to care:
Doing good for the planet
You will not be yet another website that pollutes and increases the ecological impact of the internet. It is still possible to contribute, at your level, to the safeguard of our planet. This also means becoming aware of the most polluting consumption habits that we use on a daily basis, such as a website. Thinking about the ecological footprint of your website from the very beginning of your project means doing good for the planet. It's not much on our scale, but it's already better than nothing.
Improve your referencing
Creating an eco-friendly website is about making a website simple, free of unnecessary code and easy to navigate. And Google loves that! So it will naturally put you more prominently on its search engine.
Ensuring a better user experience
Having an eco-friendly website means making your website easier to navigate while ensuring technical performance: your site is faster and therefore more convenient to visit. This way, you can better convey your message to your visitors, who will appreciate a smooth experience on your website.
Promoting your brand and its environmental impact
Highlight on your website that you are an eco-designed website that cares about its environmental impact. A brand that takes this kind of action is very well perceived by users who are now very sensitive to environmental issues. You give a good image of your brand and become an example to your visitors who will appreciate the effort made and above all will enjoy browsing a simple and sustainable website.
