Our Cheltenham, London and Leeds offices each follow measures to reduce negative environmental impact of operations.
Head office installed a 50kWp rooftop photovoltaic installation in 2012. By 2017 its output had produced enough clean electricity equivalent to 100 tonne CO2 emission from a conventional non-renewable source. And our London operation is powered for most of the year by its 82kw solar panel array. This supplies 75% of annual electricity.
Since 2006, all of the electricity used to power our offices has been supplied through a verified renewable tariff. This has significantly reduced CO2 emissions in comparison to a standard grid mix.
Server room cooling
Keeping servers running at a controlled temperature is essential to optimise performance. But the carbon footprint of year-round air conditioning didn’t sit well with our sustainability strategy. We’ve implemented an innovative fan-based system to reduce air temperature in server rooms, using less energy than air conditioning would require.
