INOMICS certified as a Carbon Neutral Website
Berlin, January 14th, 2021
INOMICS has been certified as a Carbon Neutral Website. This means that in addition to carbon reduction measures undertaken by the company in the past year, the remaining footprint caused by the running and use of INOMICS is offset by contributions to internationally recognised (VCS) projects that reduce carbon emissions.
Specifically, we contribute to hydro-electric power generation projects in Africa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This project not only generates green energy for local populations, but by replacing and reducing the extent of wood and charcoal burning it also reduces the demand for these fuels, sourced from forests home to endangered species of mountain gorillas and other threatened species. The project additionally provides employment and income for the local economy, with all the benefits for local communities that this brings.
Christopher Nash, Operations Director for INOMICS parent company, 11 Academia Networks, says:
“This certification represents the culmination and recognition of measures that we have taken as a company in the past year, including hosting our websites on carbon neutral servers, and reducing our internal “office” footprint through switching to a green energy provider. We will continue to look for ways to reduce our extended footprint, for example by selecting future suppliers based on their green-credentials, and by raising awareness among our users, suppliers and customers of this initiative and the role that every company and individual can play in reducing worldwide carbon emissions. This certification helps us to achieve this.”
The certification was awarded by Climate Partner, a well-established certification organisation. Details of the certification are available here.
