At GodsWeb we take environmental considerations very seriously. We have implemented a number of initiatives to make our service greener and more sustainable without compromising on performance or price. We approach this by avoiding unnecessary use of resources, and minimising the environmental impact of the activities which are necessary to operate our business.
Lowering the carbon footprint of our services is extremely important to us, and the data centre we use have committed to planting more than 400 trees over the coming year through sponsorship of the International Tree Foundation. By working to offset the carbon output of our operations, this enables our customers to use and provide environmentally sensitive hosting.
GodsWeb makes efforts to avoid waste across the organisation, within our office. All hardware is disposed of in accordance with WEEE regulations. We recycle paper, cans, cardboard and plastic.
We operate a paperless office. All customer communication and billing is carried out electronically, even Direct Debits are digital. This is also true of internal communications, emails and memos are never printed unless absolutely necessary.
We make use of a cold aisle containment system at our datacentre. By completely separating hot and cold air flows, cooling efficiency is improved by up to 40%, reducing the environmental footprint of our services. We make use of a managed power system to ensure that idle hardware does not consume resources unnecessarily.
