Building a sustainable future

EFWA aligns its work with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which have identified and set standards for improving the lives of our world’s human communities and the rest of life on Earth, to safeguard wellbeing in the future.  Radically transforming our digital infrastructure, including digital products and services such as websites, plays a vital part.

What we do

We work with businesses, organisations and networks around the world to help them lead the way to a more sustainable future. Implementing EFWA standards is another way for you to demonstrate your credentials to customers, employees and stakeholders, and showcase your commitment to sustainability by reducing the carbon footprint and energy consumption of your organisation’s website and digital platforms and infrastructure. We have developed tools and resources through our world-wide community of specialists, and we aim to make them as accessible as possible to all.

Thanks to the team and to the Eco-Friendly Web Alliance for making this happen. Three of our websites have met the standard and we are working on the rest. A tangible example of our support for the Race to Net Zero.

We are thrilled to announce that the Carlisle Brass website has been certified as environmentally friendly by the EFWA. It’s especially important that companies in e-commerce and others with a website, have a sustainable approach. This is something that we’d definitely recommend to businesses and other organisations in the UK and globally.

Carlisle Brass is the UK’s largest specialised developer of door and window furniture for residential and commercial properties.

The Eco-Friendly Web Alliance has certified The Ecology Centre website as climate-positive, certifying that it emits less than 1 g of carbon for each page view. As part of the criteria, we’ve committed to switching to renewable energy to power the website and taking responsibility for website carbon emissions through carbon sequestration. We are the first charity in Fife, Scotland to gain this accreditation.
