In 2009 Huxbury Quinn joined the Australian, Queensland Government - ClimateSmart Business Cluster Program and our carbon neutralisation efforts were well under way.
With a bit of research we found the most effective approach begins with resource conservation: turning off the lights, reducing travel, printing on both sides of the page etc.
You can track our progress at www.greenstreet.net.au
When it comes to production, Huxbury Quinn source and recommend the use of bio-degradable and sustainable manufactured products. We show loyalty to service providers who are active in reducing their carbon foot print or who are industry certified. This includes Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accredited printers.
Well, to make our website GREEN, Huxbury Quinn have partnered with a hosting provider with green servers and green values. In fact our hosting provider is Carbon Neutral.
Very few people realize the true impact the web hosting industry has on the environment, the average server produces the same emissions as a small 4wd let alone the data centre where the server is located, which consumes on average as much electricity as 545 households.
Let's put it another way... the average website is hosted on a server which on average produces around 12½ Tonnes of CO2 each year, that is a huge amount of CO2!
Each year your PC produces half a tonne, your car produces 5 TONNES, AND your home produces 6½ TONNES - THIS MEANS on average EACH PERSON IS responsible for 12 tonnes of the CO2 that is produced each year! THAT is a huge amount of CO2 AND SHOWS WHY we are so insistent in our beliefs IN GREEN HOSTING.
We're also active in the community promoting sustainable business through the development of a Business Eco Forum, which was started in Janauary 2009. This has grown to be a great networking opportunity to meet like minded people and businesses.
Huxbury Quinn supported GreenFest in 2008, 2009
Instead of print and distributing Christmas cards for 2009, Huxbury Quinn elected to make an environmental impact by donating $500 to Landcare Australia. The donation assisted the landcare community to purchase 500 grams of seed, which can grow up to 100,000 gum trees.
We like to work with clients that embrace the three pillars of sustainability - environmental, social and economic.
