The German web host Strato has stated that it will be completely carbon-free in January 2008. The impressive thing is that they will go the whole way with real renewable green energy and not just purchasing green tags (RECs).
Does it sound like a mission impossible or a PR-coup to you? Itâ€™s not. Strato has already proven that they mean serious by having reduced its energy usage with 30 % per customer in the past 18 months.
In an interview with The Register the CEO of Strat, Damien Schmidt, said that â€œwhile people may be more aware of reducing their individual carbon footprint, it was also important for tech firms to "look behind the screen" and consider the sizable, carbon-munching emissions spat out by IT equipment.â€
Green Blog is happy to see that more and more web host companies are taking their responsibility by going green and wish Strato the best of luck.
