100% Green Hosting

We’re proud that our hosting is run on 100% renewable electricity from sources like the sun, wind and sea.

Green Hosting

Doing the right thing

In 2017 we became one of the first hosts to be powered by 100% renewable energy - no vague carbon offsets, just a direct relationship between our datacenter and our electricity provider to power the facility with energy generated by 100% renewable sources.

Having achieved this, many companies would then feel justified in putting their feet up, content that they’ve “done their bit” to advertize greenness, and continue with business as usual.

In our eyes, achieving carbon neutrality of our electrical energy usage isn’t the end goal, it’s the barest minimum first step. The planet is fast-approaching a global disaster, and merely being able to say that as a business we’re not actively making that process worse is wholly inadequate.

This is why we’re always looking for new initiatives to lower carbon emissions and actively work to improve the environment beyond simply negating our business footprint.

Our Green Ethos

In order to meet the US commitment to reach net-zero emissions and end its contribution to global warming by 2050, as well as achieve 100% clean electricity by 2035, businesses everywhere must play their part. As a web hosting company, we are all too aware that datacenters require a tremendous amount of energy, which is why we work hard to not only achieve carbon neutrality of our electrical energy usage, but to make sustainability a central part of our operational approach.

Green mindset

We want to start creating a path to a cleaner future, so we're working with Trees For Life and Ecologi to plant carbon-capturing trees around the world.

Green-minded staff

Going beyond our everyday business operations, we offer a staff incentive scheme to help them make the switch to 100% renewable energy at home.

Green Initiative

Taking positive action against Climate Change

We’re working with some amazing organizations to cancel our carbon output and help fund climate-saving projects around the globe.

Ecologi Logo

We work with Ecologi to fund Gold Standard sustainability projects and the planting of carbon-canceling trees all over the world. To kick off our partnership with Ecologi in style we planted 1,000,000 trees in our very own Ecologi grove...and we plan to plant many many more.

Trees For Life Logo

We’re proud to be making regular direct donations to Trees for Life, a charity based in Scotland that’s working to rewild the Highlands with natural forests and so far we have planted 19,120 trees in our grove.

Rather than simply planting rows and rows of uniform carbon-capturing but otherwise ecologically destructive trees, Trees for Life is a long-term effort to restore and extend natural forest habitats providing both a carbon sink and a healthy wildlife ecosystem.

Million Tree Pledge Logo

We’re also proud to be founding members of the Million Tree Pledge. The Million Tree Pledge is a collaborative initiative bringing together businesses and individuals to make a bold, two-part commitment:

  • Plant over 1 million trees by a specific date (most pledgers have chosen 2025)
  • Find at least two other pledgers, ensuring that the initiative grows exponentially.

Our aim is to have 1000 pledgers (1 billion trees pledged) by the end of 2021, with the goal of getting to the tens of thousands of pledgers in the next few years.

SME Climate Hub

As a member of the SME Climate Hub, we’ve made an internationally recognized climate commitment as part of the United Nations Race to Zero campaign to halve our emissions before 2030 and achieve net zero emissions before 2050.

The SME Climate Hub also provides access to best-in-class tools and resources to help develop our climate strategy, measure and reduce our emissions and the emissions in our value chain, and learn about complementary carbon offset projects.
