Startpage strives to incorporate sustainable processes into our daily operations, especially practicing data management that is kind to the environment.
Our approach to data management is effective and sustainable because we don’t collect or store any personal data in the first place. That means that we use fewer resources than non-private search engines, as we don’t have anything to process or organize.
A recent analysis from greenspector.com
measured the environmental impact of eight different search engines and reported that “Startpage, in addition to having a low impact, is also less “resource-intensive” in memory than the other engines and 2 times less than Ecosia, especially on this use case. Startpage is also the most energy-efficient and 2 times less than Yahoo in the same search scenario.”
