Yahoo! going carbon neutral is equivalent to shutting off the electricity in all San Francisco homes for a month. Or, pulling nearly 25,000 cars off the road for a year.
Our (Yahoo!’s) recycling program keeps about 180,000 pounds of materials out of landfills each year.
Its something seen more and more in the hosting industry as well – should UK2 go that way as well? Would you be willing to pay extra for it?
Running a webhost is obviously leaving a nasty carbon footprint, a footprint that I for one would love to neutralise – the way most do it is by planting trees bring balance into the “eco-equation”. But the way I see it that doesn’t really make UK2 a greener company?
