The internet industry consumes enormous amounts of energy. The backbone of the internet are data centers which hold millions of large servers, stacked on top of each other in racks and they are powered up and running 24 hours a day, 365 days.

These servers consume enormous of energy and to make sure that they do not over heat and fail, they are blasted with arctic temperature air all day every day.

In fact 40% of all of the energy used to power the internet is used to keep those servers from overheating.

Data centers worldwide all pull energy from whatever power grid they rely on. Most energy in our power grids are produced by carbon polluting sources.

In 2012 there were 500,000 data centers worldwide. Today there are over 8 million data centers worldwide, an increase of 16 fold in 7 years.

The Internet is the fastest growing carbon polluting industry, and it will eclipse all other industries in terms of worldwide pollution.

Today, data centers account for 2% of the world’s carbon emissions, that is as much as the AIRLINE INDUSTRY!

But it doesn't stop there.

Data Center pollution is expected to grow to 14% of the world’s carbon emissions, as much as the United States of America, by 2040.

This is a massive problem, and it is only getting worse.

GreenGeeks' Commitment to Help Solve This Problem

Since I first read about this potential problem in 2005 I was determined that I needed to do something. When GreenGeeks stated in 2008 the company made a commitment to be the most eco-friendly green web hosting company in the World and to exposing this huge problem.

GreenGeeks has been recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency since 2009 as a Green Power Partner.

GreenGeeks work with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) in Portland, Oregon. "BEF" is a Green-e Partner.

GreenGeeks tell BEF how many servers, personnel, etc. that they have and they calculate our yearly energy consumption and carbon footprint. GreenGeek then have BEF purchase RECs 3 times as much than we have consumed, and we put that energy back into the grid.

This matches the energy we consume as well as 2 other companies our size. This is GreenGeeks’ commitment to the environment and to their customers and has been since the beginning.

To further their commitment to the environment, GreenGeeks work with One Tree Planted to plant trees across the globe. For every hosting account that they provision on their platform, they'll plant one tree.

Professional and Customers have great things to say:

One Platform. Multiple Hosting Options

No matter your hosting requirements, GreenGeeks' platform will fit your needs.
