What is Green House Web Hosting?
At Green House, we carefully calculate the carbon emissions produced as a result of our eco web hosting servers being on 24 hours a day. We then offset these emissions by planting trees at Ransom Wood Business Park in Nottinghamshire. As the trees we plant are young and will absorb much more carbon as they grow, we will, in the long term, be a carbon-positive company.
We can, therefore, have a more positive environmental impact than companies that use renewable energy, as well as providing a better value for money service.
Computer equipment currently accounts for 3-4% of the world’s carbon emissions, and 10% of the UK’s energy bill. With a carbon footprint now equal to the aviation industry, the IT industry, and businesses, are increasingly coming under the spotlight as governments seek to achieve carbon-cutting commitments.
Green House aims to counter this trend by offering individuals and business a carbon-positive web hosting service. We carefully calculate the carbon emissions of our whole business and ensure that significantly more than this total is absorbed by our trees in Ransom Wood Business Park in Nottinghamshire.
