Planting trees & funding the world’s climate crisis solutions
SirsteveHQ are proud to partner with Ecologi to enforce a climate friendly workforce, reduce our carbon footprint and help to plant trees all over the world. As part of this partnership, each month we plant 12 trees and offset 1 tonne of CO2 per employee.
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.
The internet costs a lot to power: over 400 terawatt-hours a year. While an individual website’s footprint is small, it all adds up: the internet is responsible for around 3.7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. That’s similar to the amount produced by the global airline industry. With our green hosting, you can be assured that your websites are stored on servers that avoid contributing to climate change. Sites hosted on SirsteveHQ will pass the Green Web Foundation's sustainability checks.
