You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.Jane Goodall
Aspire to be Carbon Neutral
We have never been better connected, had as much information available to us at the end of our fingertips or been able to access this information wherever and whenever we wanted to, and all for the price charged by your broadband and mobile phone supplier. Or is it…
In 2020 Google reported that it used a colossal 12.2 TWh of energy within its business in 2019. The majority of which will be used to run its data centres that let you be so connected and have all this wonderful information available to you. Commendably, Google has committed to be 100% Carbon Neutral by 2030 and is already matching 100% of its power usage with renewable energy (it has achieved this for the last 3 years).
In the UK many businesses have committed to some form of carbon neutrality and CBJ Digital are included in this group. Not only are we aspiring to become carbon neutral as a business by the end of 2022, we are looking to ensure the online presence of all of our clients are also carbon neutral. To that end we have already started to achieve our goals for our clients.
Environmental & Committed
CBJ Digital is to become Carbon Neutral as a business by 2023.
Green & Focussed
All of the websites we build and manage will be hosted on servers that use green energy.
Offset & Plant
CBJ Digital will carbon offset all websites that we build through the support of initiatives to plant trees in the UK.
Support & Promote
CBJ Digital will support and promote internet initiatives that focus on reducing carbon footprints and assisting businesses to becoming carbon neutral.
With immediate effect all new projects we build will be hosted on servers that are run using Green Energy and by hosting companies that have shown a significant desire to drive towards carbon neutrality. Approximately 80% of our existing projects are already hosted on these servers and it is our intention to migrate the remainder of the sites to our new servers within the next 18 months.
CBJ Digital aim to be accredited as Carbon Neutral by 2023.
CBJ Digital operates a virtual business structure with the aim of minimising its carbon footprint. We have access to office space when required but look to minimise travel by working virtually wherever possible.
All members of staff are encouraged to use low energy appliances in their work environment and to ensure minimal use of power whenever possible.
What business commodities our team need to use to fulfil their job functions is purchased with the environment in mind whether this is a recycled notepad or pen to an energy efficient computer screen. Wherever possible we avoid using paper products if notes can be taken electronically.
As we are in the technology industry, we acknowledge that our equipment can need to be at the higher end of the quality scale. We ensure that any equipment we purchase is completed through companies who share our ethos regarding the environment. In turn we look to recycle as much of our equipment as possible to extend its working life.
For all client meetings we will explore the option to hold the meeting virtually if possible. If a face-to-face meeting does have to take place we look to minimise the impact of the journey using the most effective transport solution.
