of the month (January 2005).
On 15th January 2005 Green ISP offset thier estimated Co2 emissions.
”We calculated the electricity consumption of our Data-Centre share at
this time, and are working on a figure of around 35 Tonnes per Year of Co2 emissions,
which most experts would agree equates to around 105 native British or 3 trees
per tonne per year to off-set our C02” explains Founder and Director Paul
Palmer, who is totally focused on environmentalism and sustainability, and, is
passionate about safeguarding our planet.
Combining experience in organic farming/growing with a background in Environmental
Controls Engineering and Information Technology, Mr Palmer has recently experienced
a period of sustainable low-impact living and thinks the time is right for Green
ISP; ‘we would like to inspire other businesses to take the challenge and
follow suit.’ He said.
After this all the BroadBand trees will be planted at an appropriate time in
the planting season.
ON THE DAY ?
On the day around a dozen people successfully planted
over 150 trees, several species of tree were planted including Rowan, Willow,
Oak, Hawthorn on a site in the Midgley area in co-operation with Climate
Action and Tree Planting group “Treesponsibility” a Hebden
Bridge based company in a way which could eventually involve local communities
are running an initiative which they call their “Carbon
Positive” programme which is intended to help other companies
in and around the Calderdale area do the same as Green ISP
and help reduce their environmental footprint.
Green ISP is an Environmentally Guided Internet Services company (vISP)
which in December 2004 decided to go a step further and plant a tree
for every new Broadband customer to even further offset Co2. Green ISP
hope that they can replicate this business model in other parts of the
country with the help of Treesponsibility and other groups.
