Our planet is in trouble, and we believe everyone is responsible to do their part to reduce the impact of climate change. While we have always offerred a non-profit web hosting plan that helps a lot of green-oriented non-profits, we wanted to do more. Since 2006 we have made being green part of our mission.
Are green certificates the same as "carbon offsetting"?
No. Carbon offsetting is another type of program that lets greenhouse gas producers buy a greenhouse gas reduction source from somewhere else to "balance" their emissions. Green tags, in contrast, are about investing in renewable power and paying for the energy you use to come from renewable sources in the first place.
