Green Web Hosting : Environmental Policy
Austiger Hosting has made a commitment to "go green" and in doing so we won't be passing the costs of our "greening process" on to our web hosting clients. It is our goal to ensure that in providing services to our customers our net impact on the environment is positive.
Austiger management and staff recognise that the IT industry in general and in particular hosting enviroments contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emission due to high electricity consumption. We've decided to do something positive about our contribution to the environment!
As a company, we decided that we should undertake the program on our own behalf rather than cynically trying to pass the costs on to you indirectly or to ask you to "opt in" to pay a fee. So be happy, as we are, that the costs for our carbon neutrality is coming straight from our profit margin not from your pockets! We won't be asking you to contribute, if you feel you want to, then implement a similar program in your own business and we'll all be winners!
What have we done?
Generally, if you are looking at your own business' environmental impact you don't need to account for anything to do with services we provide to you, we've already done it and at NO additional cost to you!
Clients can enjoy the fact that the hosting of their website and the support services we provide are carbon neutral as can AusTiger's clients in both our Lambton and Sydney Datacentres. If your clients care about the environment, using us will look good for you!
If you have any ideas or suggestions that will assist us in our efforts, particulary as it may relate to dealing with you please feel free to contact us!
As part of our research we found some fantastic information on the impact climate change is having on the environment, what businesses can do to offset and reduce their emissions and also what you can do personally to reduce your environmental footprint.
