Partnering with the Woodland Trust for sustainability

While our primary workload at is powered by 100% renewable energy (our office and datacentre consume power from suppliers that rely 100% on renewables) this month we’re pretty excited to announce a new partnership that pushes our eco-conscious goals even further. This means our website hosting is now greener than ever!

June sees the start of our long term link up with the Woodland Trust through their Woodland Carbon project. Here’s how they describe the project:

By funding the planting of new native woodland such as oak and beech trees via our Woodland Carbon project, we can make sure that CO2 emissions are absorbed from our atmosphere and stored by the trees as they grow. We plant on average 25m2 of woodland at our project sites for each tonne of CO2 emitted.

The Woodland Carbon project is certified by the Woodland Carbon Code which means it meets the standards required of the voluntary carbon market for CO2 reduction. The project is listed on the international environmental registry here as well.

For 2019-2020, has committed to funding the planting 7,500m2 of new woodland, enough to absorb some 300 tonnes of carbon. For reference our own power consumption – which is already carbon neutrally powered remember – would generate 135 tonnes of carbon through the year. You might say we’re carbon negative!

This is just one small part of what we do to make sure our business has a genuinely positive impact.

If you’d like to know more about how we try to give back and where your money goes when you work with, details of our sustainable practices can be found here.

This also coincides neatly with our recent accreditation with the independent Green Web Foundation this month. You can use their handy tool at any time to check if the service or website you’re using utilizes renewable energy.

You can also generate a cool little logo/badge for your own website to show your site is hosted by a provider using renewable energy too!
