Sustainability is at the core of what we do.
As of 2019 our web hosting data centre provider (Equinix) achieved 100% renewable energy on their European operations. This means that all of the servers we host our websites on are powered by a mixture of certified green wind power, onsite solar PV installations and renewable Energy Credits.
Since 2008 we’ve worked from an office in the heart of Shrewsbury that has low energy credentials at its heart. The building was awarded a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Certification, which is the highest level possible and is a showcase for high quality low energy sustainable design. The buildings design includes high levels of insulation, a Biomass heating system, a heat recovery system, a large area of photovoltaic solar panels producing a peak output of (7.7kW) and a rainwater recovery system.
We have a robust recycling system within the office and encourage the recycling of IT equipment when it’s no longer needed. Increasingly we look for environmental credentials when choosing suppliers. We like our projects to have positive impact on the environment, whether that is reducing energy usage, to cut back excess travel and reduce wastage.
