How are we ‘Green’?

Well, we don’t have wind turbines or wave power generators in our offices but…

We have decided to make our website go green by choosing to have our website hosted on green servers by a company with green values. 100% green renewable energy is used to power parts of the Just Host data center, web servers, and office space. The server this site is hosted on is a ‘Green’ energy efficient server, which produces 20% less CO2 than the average server. Being Just Host ‘Green’ eCertified means this website has contributed to Just Hosts tree planting project, which aims to neutralize our (and your) affects on the environment. Just Host employ ‘Green’ ethics throughout their workplace and data centers. Just Host has invested in and started promoting a green way of living to all staff by introducing advanced recycling techniques. As well as the standard paper and cardboard recycling, Just Host have gone a step further so everything from the batteries we use to power our wireless mice to the printer ink cartridges get recycled. Vehicle sharing has been introduced by Just Host to cut carbon emissions, their UK office employees were incentivized to partner up and in some cases group together to lift share to work.

Why Go Green?

Very few people realize the true impact the web hosting industry has on the environment, the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV let alone the data centre where the server is located which consumes on average as much electricity as 30,000 households.

Let’s put it another way… the average website is hosted on a server which on average produces around 12½ Tonnes of CO2 each year, that is a huge amount of CO2!

Each year your PC produces half a tonne, your car produces 5 TONNES, AND your home produces 6½ TONNES – THIS MEANS on average EACH PERSON IS responsible for 12 tonnes of the CO2 that is produced each year! THAT is a huge amount of CO2 AND SHOWS WHY we are so insistent in our beliefs IN GREEN HOSTING.
