Providing green web hosting and ISP services – doing everything we can to protect the environment within an industry which consumes a massive amount of power is important to everyone at WebMate. So as well as recycling, reducing our power usage and participating in environmental,  initiatives, both locally and worldwide, we offset 100% of the electricity and gas we use in our offices and datacenters – certified 19.32 tonnes of Co2 in 2018-2019. We’re constantly looking at new ways to be green.

Investing in Green Energy

We’re proud to help support green energy projects throughout the world from hydro-electric to wind turbines. Discover some of them here.

Our Internal Carbon Reduction initiatives

The internet consumes a massive amount of electricity for servers, switches and air-conditioning to keep the servers cool. To off-set the energy that we have to use that’s not from renewable sources, we buy carbon-credits to do our bit elsewhere.

As well as helping to fund projects around the world to achieve carbon-neutrality from the large amounts of electricity our servers burn, we do what we can in our offices and datacenters to limit our impact on the environment. So much so that our own carbon consumption has been reduced by over 50% over the last 2 years. These include:

  • All LED Lighting in our offices
  • Efficient Heat Exchanger to replace power-hungry air conditioning units in our offices
  • Replacing spinning drives with power-efficient SSD’s
  • Using lower-power CPU units for backup and non-essential servers
  • Our own electric BMW i3 Pool car for travel wherever possible (one of our biggest savings)
  • Choosing greener energy suppliers where possible, to run datacenters on renewable power wherever possible (currently around 30% of the electricity we use is from renewable sources – and were increasing this all the time).

Auto eco friendly hosting Electric Pool Car We don't do a great deal of driving, but with our main datacenter a 500 mile round-trip away, using an electric car for these trips, as well as many short trips as we can, saves us a whopping 3.5 tonnes of carbon each year. carbon neutral green website hosting Lights LED lights We've not got grand offices but replacing filament and fluorescent lights with LED lights, which not only use 8 times less energy, but the fittings last a lot longer too - up to 5 times longer - so require less energy and carbon to produce in the long term. LED lighting and our heat exchanger save 4.42 tonnes of carbon per year! carbon neutral green web hosting carbon neutral green website host

WebMate Environmental Policy Mission

Whilst we can’t actually run our hundreds of servers and switches on vegetable oil for practical reasons (although we’re still hoping), by carbon-offsetting and following our environmental mission policy, we can sleep better knowing we’re doing what we can to help the planet.

  • To reduce Carbon footprint in real terms as much as we can.

  • Offset remainder of carbon usage with genuine programs in the UK, US and worldwide so that we offset 100% of our electricity and gas usage for our offices, datacenters and electric pool vehicles.

  • Invest in Energy Saving technology where possible in office and datacenters.

  • Partner with suppliers who share our green commitments and values where possible.

  • Purchase 100% renewal energy where possible, including vehicle charging at base and remotely.

  • Recycle office waste as much as possible – including plastics, metals, paper and card.

  • Compost bio-waste where possible, include coffee and teabags.

  • Avoid printing and use digital communications and record-keeping where possible.

  • Encourage a culture within WebMate of environmental awareness and consideration for our planet at all times.
