Our carbon footprint

The Permaculture Education Institute is actively committed to lowering our carbon footprint and reducing carbon emissions associated with our online courses and other digital offerings.

Lowered website footprint

Our website is designed to reduce the amount of energy it uses, helping lower its carbon footprint. Here are some of the energy-efficiency strategies we use.

Solar-powered web hosting — on a sunny day, the system can run almost entirely off-grid

Using less energy-hungry photos & videos across our site

Optimising images to smaller sizes to reduce page load emissions

Regularly auditing and deleting old & unused website pages

Eco-village headquarters

Our office is located within our hand-built, solar-powered, water-harvesting home, tucked inside an award-winning Australian permaculture education garden within a United Nations-recognised permaculture eco-village.
