met its goals as far as green initiatives were concerned in 2008. The company, which bills itself as a pioneering provider of high-reliability web hosting for businesses worldwide, launched a series of initiatives designed to help customers operate with minimal environmental impact in June 2008.
ServInts Green Initiative programs included offsetting the total carbon footprint of its entire line of Virtual Private Server (VPS) solutions by at least 110%. To achieve this, the company embarked on a reforestation campaign operated by American Forests
. In addition, the company exceeded environmental standards for recycling recyclable components, and the company used of Dell low-voltage server hardware for two of its most popular hosting services - SuperVPS and UltimateVPS. Using this technology the company was able to ensure low per-capita energy consumption through efficient virtualization.
In 2008, we helped ourselves, our customers and the planet by utilizing efficient servers, recycling our components and investing in carbon-offset projects, explained Reed Caldwell, Founder and CEO of ServInt. This year, we will continue our commitment to these green measures and go even further by exploring new ways of decreasing waste and increasing efficiency.
