Grant website is now carbon neutral

 

Did you know that the data centres for housing IT servers and providing website hosting use a large amount of energy and produce tonnes of CO2 each year?  The Carbon Trust has said that by 2020 data centres worldwide are expected to generate a staggering 533 million tonnes of CO2.

With that thought in mind, it’s easy to see why Grant have joined the 1st certified carbon neutral hosting company in the UK, ensuring www.grantuk.com is as green as the Company’s thinking.

The hosting is provided by UKFast, a business that, like Grant, recognise the need to develop carbon efficient solutions to reduce environmental impact.  They work with one of the world leaders in carbon management to offset their carbon emissions.  Recognising the need for action, UKFast became carbon neutral by offsetting the annual carbon footprint of the head office and data centres – including all devices and daily operational power consumption.
