What is a Go Green Version?

When you click on the Go Green Button it will switch to a climate friendly version of the SSCL website. There are many benefits to using the climate friendly version:

  • A reduction in the page weight by between 30-50%
  • Image and videos removed from initial page load to reduce bandwidth.
  • Energy efficiency – using a monochrome design and utilising server-side technologies to consume less energy leading to reduced electricity consumption.
  • Faster load times.

Benefits to you

A climate friendly version of your Portal means that you can access valuable information easier and quicker, even where bandwidth or internet connection is an issue.

Low bandwidth takes away images, colour and videos only. The content remains the same and is downloaded at a faster rate!

Benefits to the environment

Your climate friendly version of the Portal also has benefits to our environment such as:

  • A reduction in the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
  • Lower consumption of electricity.
  • A reduced carbon footprint of the website.
  • Mitigation of the effects of global climate change.
