Did you know…
A website, like ours, over a year, with 10,000 monthly page views, produces 78.6kg of CO2 equivalent.
That's the same weight as 0.52 sumo wrestlers and as much CO2 as boiling water for 10,650 cups of tea.
It would emit 183kWh of energy, that’s enough electricity to drive an electric car 1,168km!
A webpage like the one you are reading, emits the same amount of carbon that 4 trees absorb in a year.

We recently relaunched stemworks.co.uk, who deliver a wide range of educational activities such as workshops, competitions and awards and hope to inspire young people from all backgrounds to consider STEM careers.
“STEMworks previous website was difficult to upkeep and failed to provide the intended user experience for all visitors. Initi understood our needs and created a fresh and relevant website solution that was easy to navigate and simple for us to update. Throughout the process, Initi’s communication has been excellent, they provided hand over training and continue to offer support and guidance. We have been impressed with the service Initi provides. ”
We recently helped Sophie Golden, who studied Visual Merchandising at The London School of Fashion start her new sustainable fashion company Threads & Fibre.
“My business is an online clothing shop and the website experience was vital if this was going to be successful. Having explored various options based on referrals for the right website designer, I narrowed it down to the skills of Initi. They didn’t disappoint and I owe so much gratitude for their efforts in helping me create the vision for my online business. They made it easier then I could have imagined to create my online business and understood what I was trying to achieve from the get go. Without hesitation, highly recommended. ”
We helped Becky Arnold, founder of the Cotswold Box Company take her business online. They sell artisan products that are created locally and are committed to reducing waste. The gift boxes and wrap are fully recyclable and all greeting cards come naked (no plastic sleeves). Their partners are hand selected and all respect our planet too!
“Initi helped us with all of our digital needs, from the logo creation, migration from our first website to Shopify and the online store creation and optimisation. They helped with every single online aspect. We're so happy with our site and would highly recommend Initi to anyone.”
Marine training center iPowerboat sought Initi Digital's expertise to develop a student training application. We developed an educational mobile app for the Google Play Store and Apple App store and introduced quizzes and learning modules. The app has been rated 4.9 out of 5 on the AppStore and 5 out of 5 on Google
“We wanted to be able to allow our students to learn remotely in their own time. Initi created our App and our feedback directly from the students has been nothing other than positive. Initi are easy to communicate with, and always quick to respond to messages and requests.”
We helped Lisa Strachan, start her new eco-friendly, palm oil free candle company 'The Little Flame'.
They sell soy wax, 100% recyclable, handmade candles - they've committed to no animal testing and they also use fairtrade cotton bags and best of all, for every candle purchased they plant a tree.
“As my business is purely online at the moment I knew I had to have an impressive website and Initi did not disappoint! All my ideas were listened to and even suggestions made on improvements. Nothing was too much trouble whilst all the timescales were met. If you are looking for a friendly yet professional company to fulfill your website needs I can highly recommend Initi. ”
