How does Green Certified Site work?
Once you sign up, you will get a short code snippet to insert into your website. That snippet will automatically monitor and neutralize the end-to-end carbon footprint of your website -- not just the servers, but the visitors' computers (while they are on your site) and the networks that connect them. Green Certified Site works with all hosts.
Who uses Green Certified Site?
A wide variety of small, medium, and large websites and blogs use Green Certified Site. We have worked with IBM, Harvard University, Segway, and thousands of other companies, individuals, and organizations.

If you want API access to create and delete individual GCS accounts for your customers, contact us for GCS Host. If your energy firm wants to provide website owners with a branded widget showing the contribution of your fuel type to the current electricity mix of their site experiences, contact us for GCS Mix.

Improve your visitor engagement.
Proudly display that your site is providing visitors' computers with a carbon neutral experience, encouraging each visitor to view more of your pages and generate more sales and attention. Green Certified Site includes integrated A/B testing to monitor changes in your site's engagement (page views per visitor) as a result of displaying the trustmark.
Neutralize your site's footprint.
You know you're green, but how do you prove it to your customers? With Green Certified Site, your visitors can see live reports on your site's footprint. We then purchase as part of your subscription, at no added cost, auditable certificates showing that you are effectively neutralizing your site's footprint with carbon offsets or renewable energy from wind and solar farms.
Improve your site's energy efficiency.
Studies show that websites lose more sales due to slow page load times than anything else. With Green Certified Site, you can make sure that your website loads as quickly as possible. This not only increases your sales, but also reduces network electricity consumption and improves your page rank on search engines.
