Earning money from positive actions
We have an ethical policy which outlines the kinds of activities we love to support via our services and those we do not wish to profit from. We implemented this policy from the inception of our business back in 2004.
This isn’t a judgemental thing, it’s about concentrating our efforts to facilitate the success of those who are making a positive impact. Everyone is on a journey, including ourselves and we’re learning all the time, adjusting our choices and practices based on what we currently know.
We are so fortunate to be able to work with some really amazing individuals and organisations. Take a look at our Clients page to see who else is using our Green Hosting.
