Green energy at all levels

Taking responsibility for the environment also means drawing electricity from renewable energy sources. We have already been using clean energy for the power supply in our business premises since 2005 and have been honoured as an environmental partner of Greenpeace Energy. We also hold shares in the company, which offers electricity exclusively from clean power plants without using coal-burning or nuclear power plants.

In the meantime we have also switched our data centre to using electricity exclusively from renewable sources. In collaboration with our energy provider, we were able to successfully implement this important step for us in January 2011.

 

Energy-efficient hardware

For many years we have felt obligated to contribute to the conservation of the environment and have been replacing high-polluting hardware with low-polluting hardware and are also focusing on new technologies such as virtual machines. Energy-efficiency is decisive to us for new investments. Against this backdrop, we have also subjected parts of our data centre to the city of Hamburg’s “ServerraumCheck” server room check:
