Yes, and the main way to achieve greener web design is to make more efficient websites to minimize the energy needed to serve pages. Efficient code, optimized assets, and intuitive navigation all contribute to less energy used on the site’s server. It’s worth it to look for green hosts, or to estimate your power usage and offset the energy your site requires with carbon credits yourself. The dream is for the major CDNs to go fully renewable and to use them to serve pre-rendered, serverless html.
