Reduced physical infrastructure: With cloud computing, there is no need for physical infrastructure such as servers and network equipment to be housed on-premises, which leads to significant reductions in resource consumption, such as energy and water usage.
Scalability and flexibility: Cloud computing allows for efficient resource allocation and scalability, allowing for resource consumption based on demand and reducing energy consumption and environmental impact.
Reduced travel: Offering products and services in the cloud reduces the need for travel.
The majority of our data centre locations are in areas with mainly green grid power. We actively look for the best available sources of renewable electricity.
However, it’s important to note that the industry is not immune to environmental impact. For example, data centers that host digital products require significant amounts of energy to operate and cool, leading to carbon emissions. Being an international player in a services business incurs travel for operations, services, and sales.
Hence, continuous focus on smart travel and good hosting partners remains vital for us to continue focusing on sustainability and reducing our environmental impact.
