WHO ARE WE AND WHAT IS OUR PHILOSOPHY?
Founded in 2003, Green ISP is a not-for-profit, forward thinking, innovative Internet Services Provider (ISP), which aims to secure its vision of being securely placed to meet the understanding and requirements of our fast changing world, society and environment.
We offer high quality internet services such as ADSL Broadband, vDSL (Fibre Broadband), sDSL., ADSL2+ via LLU or BT 21st Century network.
Professional web hosting also available.
Sustainability is key:
(Not only being "Carbon Neutral")
We were the UK,s first ISP to take this issue seriously.
Sustainable Development and Business "meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs"
Photosynthesis? "sequestration" or "Carbon Fix"
Is the conversion/absorbsion of carbon dioxide and water into a sugar called glucose using sunlight energy.
Oxygen is produced as a waste product.
Chlorophyll is the "green" chemical needed by plants for this process, CO2 is absorbed to help the tree grow.
We "assist" in the offset all of our estimated 25 Tonnes per year of CO2 (by "sequestration" or "Carbon Fix") by working with TreeSponsibility, a community based Climate Action Group, we also plant a tree for every new Broadband and Web Hosting customer, in effect becoming "carbon positive", we solar power our offices and operate within our environmental and ethical policy (we have been doing this since December 2003).
Deforestation accounts for nearly 20 percent of carbon emissions caused by human activities, according to the international scientific body Global Carbon Project and the CSIRO Division of Marine and Atmospheric Research.
Green ISP office is solar PV powered 1/2Kw/450ah/24v-240v Inverted, all other electricity is supplied from renewable's provided by Good Energy the UK's only 100% renewable tarif.
LEFT: PV Panels 1/2KW.
We aim to run our operations in a completely radical way, our energy consumption will be from renewable sources, and all consumables will be as environmentally friendly as it is possible.
We aim to assure our vision of a business model fit for the future, so being as sustainable as we can be while impacting on our Planet as little as possible will help.

HOW DO WE DO IT?
THE NETWORK AND SYSTEMS.
At this time we outsource most of our network infrastructure, so we can concentrate on the Green ISP vision.
The main data centre facility is accredited to ISO14001 which requires us to be able to demonstrate environmental consideration and planning within it's day to day activities.
A number of Leading Providers are utilised for all the Major network and connectivity requirements.
Including: BT, Cable and Wireless and Ticali, BT for ADSL porting. Radius, web and DNS servers are based in Telehouse where there is a dual resilient network.
The network is extremely well peered utilising multiple gigabit links with extensive LINX, LIPEX and LoNAP routes, one of the primary upstreams is Level 3 providing unsurpassed connectivity to the US. The network is fully BGP4 multihomed utilising our suppliers own AS.
The UK Hosting Facility
The UK systems are fully carbon offset as explained to lhe left here and we do all we can to improve the way we have an environmental impact, see: http://www.greenwebhost.net for more info
Solar WebHost Datacentre in the US
The datacentre we utilise for our
Solar Web Hosting option is in California east of Los Angeles. The data center is powered by 120 solar panels which generate all the electricity. The Solar is owned and operated by the Datacentre to power California's first and only solar-powered hosting company (please be aware tht there is a 10 hour time difference so set-up times are longer).
THE FUTURE AND OUR PLANS
During 2012 we will be liaising with investors and technical experts in the field, meeting with IT partners and renewable energy experts, to do a feasibility study this spring 2013.
Our vision is to initiate Europe's first "Solar Powered Micro-Data-centre" build, we will be meeting with key people interested in making this vision a reality, this is looking more likely to be in Portugal.
Any Investors or IT companies wishing to be involved with this project, please contact us by email to arrange an informal chat about what we can do together.

Green ISP / Green WebHost did not and does not wait until ISO's and BSI Standards are introduced or legislation passed to force us to be Environmentally and Ethically aware, pro-active and commited, we have been doing it Voluntaraly since 2003, no other Hosting company or ISP we know of can claim that fact? If you know of one please let us know.
We work alongside other Organisations and Individuals who do the same.
We have been leading this philosophy.
