The core of our green credentials is in our Energy Efficient Technology & Platform. However, we don't just rely on technology to help make us and ultimately your hosting greener and more environmentally friendly. Through a number of schemes, best practices and incentives we want our company and our people as a whole to be more eco-friendly.
We provide our people with the opportunity to enrol in the Cycle to Work Scheme not only reducing car journeys and the emissions these produce but also improving their health and well being.
We're an internet company - where we're going we don't need paper! Our office is designed to use as little paper as possible - we want to be a Paperless Office. This of course not only saves the paper itself but the environmental cost of printing.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This extends beyond ensuring the right waste (we try to keep this to a minimum) goes in the right bin. We've eliminated paper and plastic cups - every staff member has their own reusable and refillable drinking vessel.
Minimising my environmental impactCloud Next was recommended to me first and foremost for their hosting packages. Being considerate to our environment is important to me. Whilst chatting to their sales team and asking about their green attributes I was impressed that I could minimise my environmental impact using them as my hosting provider. It's only the little things but they all add up.
Our people have the opportunity to work remotely and securely from home. As part of this incentive, Cloud Next invested in providing LED lighting for all remote work spaces.
Everyone has the opportunity to have a plant on their desk. Plants produce more oxygen, offsetting any chemicals released into the air by new office furniture and making a cleaner, happier space to work in.
If any member of our team needs to travel for business, we offset the carbon used for their return travel. We've embraced webinars and remote conferences to minimise the carbon footprint of the company.
Your sites are hosted on the latest and extremely energy-efficient Dell servers, including SSDs that use less power than standard SATA disks used by other hosting providers.
Not only is the hardware energy-efficient, but the low power consumption means faster processing speeds and lightning-fast access to your data from 100% SSD hosting across our entire platform.
Our hosting platform has been designed with a maximum use, no waste of resources mindset. Every aspect of our hosting platform is built to be as energy-efficient as possible. Your site will be "carbon-reducing" when hosted on our platform.
You can feel good that you're helping make a small difference by hosting on a platform that is environmentally friendly.
In essence, the PuE (Power usage Effectiveness) is the ratio of the energy used by our Data Centre against the energy used by our Data Centre to deliver its services. PuE is a tool that Data Centre owners can use to measure how well the infrastructure is working.
The PuE is higher for more inefficient Data Centres; facilities that require more power will more than likely have a higher operating cost.
Our PuE is on average 1.2 (very efficient).
Cloud Next are proud to partner with Ecologi to enforce a climate positive workforce, reduce our carbon footprint and help to plant trees all over the world.
It is common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse. Through Ecologi and their partnership with The Eden Reforestation Projects, they help plant millions of trees around the world each month.
Ecologi invest into projects that remove more greenhouse gasses than our own carbon footprint puts in. Each month they pick the best CO2 reduction projects with Gold Standard certification, so the highest rated projects are making the most impact.
