More CO2 than jet fuel
Information technology is expanding rapidly and should contribute up to 3.5% of global climate change by 2020. Furthermore, it is most likely to contribute about 5% of global climate change far before 2050. This means that the internet will be as big of a polluter to the environment as the airline industry by the year 2020.
Many people think that the internet is eco-friendly because it is distributing information without the use of paper and without the use of delivery methods like trucks, planes and other means of transport. Unfortunately, the situation is the opposite of what people think. Most of the energy used for website hosting servers come from fossil fuels. Each web hosting produces approximately 1390 pounds of CO2 per year. If we consider that there are tens of millions of servers worldwide, and growth in web hosting services is estimated to be greater than 400% each year for the foreseeable future, we can easily understand that the situation is far from being eco-friendly.

Make the right choice
As of today, when developing a new website or in the process of selecting a hosting company, it is important to think about your impact on the environment. With GreenGeeks you have a choice. You can choose to host your site with an eco-friendly web hosting company, which gives you the same technology and performance as a standard hosting company. By doing this, you’ll have the opportunity to lower, negate or even reverse the carbon footprint of your business, while being in a position to influence other websites like yours to do the same.
How GreenGeeks has an environmental impact
Powered by 300% renewable energy, GreenGeeks is the most eco-friendly web hosting company in all the hosting industry. They work with Bonneville Environmental Foundation out of Portland. Also, they are an EPA Green Power Partner. What makes GreenGeeks so interesting, is that for every unit of power consumed, they purchase three units (hence, the figure 300%) of wind-powered energy, and send it back to the grid to offset the company’s carbon footprint. GreenGeeks does this with all of their servers and workspaces.This is how they are able to wipe out their own carbon footprint, while also negating the carbon footprint of two additional web hosting companies of their size. That makes them the greenest web hosting company in the industry.
GreenGeeks is on a mission to influence and bring awareness to the other web hosting companies and to consumers as well. As long as consumers demand for eco-friendly web hosting services, this segment will continue to grow, and a majority of traditional web hosting companies will most likely change and become much more eco-friendly web host’s. This trend has already illuminated consumers around the world, as more and more web users understand the need for a new kind of internet, a green internet.
