Athenaeum is one of the green web hosts that we recommend. Athenaeum is a family owned web host located in the UK. Jamie Simpson and Sue Rhodes are the owners. They are both vegetarians since several years ago. This is what they say about themselves:
Athenaeum from their home which means they have no CO2 polluting travels to their office. Does it sound weird that they maintain and run a web host from their home? Well maybe a little. But Athenaeum is at the moment an Aiso reseller (Aiso is another fully green web host that we support. If you are interested we have written about Aiso before). That means they buy hosting space from the green web host Aiso and sell to their own customers. Reseller hosting is not unusual, your current host is probably a reseller host.
Athenaeum uses recycled paper for most of their office printing. They recycle used office paper and card. They review their suppliers and their own measures to reduce the amount of paper they use (e.g. email invoices, online banking, reusing envelopes, using online government systems for VAT returns etc). Athenaeum also reuses equipment and buys things that last longer, meaning they try to waste as little recourses as possible.
Athenaeum plans on building a green data centre in the UK. They have no final details yet, but they have a very clear vision of what their â€œidealâ€ would be. For an example check this image.
