It is a fact that UK data centres use over 2.5% of Britain’s total grid power (second only to aviation as the largest contributor of carbon emissions). For many years the agency, like many, has been very conscious of our footprint and do all we can to negate any negative impact we have on the environment.

As a result we have a near zero carbon server footprint . Here is a great article about Coreix’s market leading approach and why we enjoy our affiliation so much.
