Carbon Neutrality is Something to Shout About
Article date: Tue, 15 Mar 2011 14:18 GMT
At the end of last year, we announced that UKFast was the first 100% certified carbon neutral hosting company in the UK. This meant that all of our clients had entirely environmentally friendly and carbon neutral hosintg too.
To celebrate this, we've created a handy logo to acknowledge the carbon neutral status of your solution, so that our clients can display this on their sites and be as proud of this as we are.
Our MD Lawrence Jones believes that those at the forefront of the technology industry have a responsibility to lead the charge for sustainable IT. "I was fortunate to spend a week with Sir Richard Branson at the beginning of this year and we discussed green IT at length. His launch of The Carbon War Room encouraged me to escalate UKFast's plans to reduce our impact on the planet."
Here at UKFast we have been working hard to cancel out our environmental impact for some time, with our own green data centre currently in the final stages of completion.
Lawrence explains, "Our new data centre will assist with the reduction of our overall power consumption and contribute toward the UK target to keep global temperature increase below the two degree Celsius threshold. If we can achieve this across the board we can help to stave off the worst effects of climate change."
This means that any one of the 4,000 clients on our network can now show the world that they are proud to have entirely carbon neutral hosting, and are caring for our planet by choosing to host with UKFast.
