Our website is a reflection of Balestra’s commitment to environmental responsibility.

Websites have increased the space they take up on servers threefold in the last decade, according to an ongoing trend based not only on the growing amount of information available online, but also on scarcely efficient coding techniques that cause a tangible impact – in terms of energy used every time a single byte is stored, recalled, and interpreted in a browser.

We believe aesthetic choices should be made considering the full context of their effects over time. That’s why our new website conveys accurate content using the bare minimum resources: each page weighs under 500kB and loads in a fraction of a second, and fully complies with W3C standards and current accessibility best practices.
