Blog and website hosting platform
Founded by Matt Mullenweg in 2005, the web development company has staff in 52 countries and an estimated 25% of platforms in the world use WordPress (January 2017). The WordPress platform (blogging service) is free but the company offers additional tools and services that generate income. Acquired Tumblr in 2019.
Greenpeace's 2017 report 'Clicking Clean' looks at the energy footprints of large data centre operators and popular websites and applications, and calls on these companies to power their data centres on renewable energy. Companies are graded (A,B,C,D,F) on their commitment to and procurement of renewable energy, as well as energy efficiency, transparency and advocacy. This company's final grade was D.
