Powered by 100% renewable energy
We are on a journey to find technology solutions that minimise damage to the environment, and an important part of that is finding is hosting suppliers that promote sustainability.
Ensuring our website is running in an environmentally responsible way is essential to us, and in 2022 we made the switch to 100% renewable power for our website power and cooling.
We also need to ensure that the data centres hosting our website are efficient too. The industry uses a metric called PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) and most hosting companies operate at 1.2 or higher – ours is hosted in data centres with. a PUE rating of of 1.12
Why we need green hosting
The internet costs a lot to power: over 400 terawatt-hours a year. While an individual website’s footprint is small, it all adds up: the internet is responsible for around 3.7% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
That’s similar to the amount produced by the global airline industry (around 3.7%) left unchecked, this will only increase considering 63% of the world’s population now use the internet.
