Thanks to the wonderful team at Hive and Host, who manage WordPress website hosting and maintenance, our website is now powered by 100% renewable energy.
This amazing news means that our hosting is now powered exclusively by wind and solar power.
With the effects of climate change becoming more and more extreme, and the earth now being 1.1 degrees warmer than it was in the late 1800s, we are very glad that our website is no longer contributing to the problem.
Why is green hosting important?
The internet costs a lot to power – around 400 terawatt hours a year.
While an individual website’s footprint is small, it all adds up.
The internet is responsible for around 3.7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. That’s similar to the amount produced by the global airline industry.
Hear from the Director at Hive and Host
Drew Sayer,, Director at Hive & Host said “Over the last year we’ve been working to consolidate hosting and domain name suppliers to those that carry green credentials. We have specifically switched from those that run their infrastructure using energy from fossil fuels.
The internet uses a tremendous amount of energy. Greenhouse emissions are similar to that produced by the global airline industry, so this is an important issue to address. Our action towards this is to partner with suppliers that only use 100% renewable energy.
Our vision is to reduce our environmental impact and consumption to the lowest levels we can – and as a result our clients reduce their impact too.
Our ethos is always to strive for value but not at the expense or our ethical choices or quality of service.
Looking forward, we hope to attract more customers that want to do business with like-minded companies, that take responsibility to protect natural resources through their business practices.”

We LOVE that we work with such an ethical, eco-conscious supplier.
