WebTranslateIt has reached carbon neutrality

Posted by Estelle on September 11, 2017

We believe it is now impossible to deny global warming and the fact that we are all responsible for it, this is why we have decided to offset our carbon footprint.
We first had to calculate it, which was not easy because many websites claim to give accurate results. The best carbon footprint calculator we found was CarbonFootprint.com. The list of questions they ask is very thorough but it is still easy to answer all of them as long as you have access to your company’s expenses.

To our surprise, we discovered that the biggest impact didn’t come from our travels, electricity or water consumption but from the manufactured goods we are buying, especially high-tech ones: laptops, phones. We work remotely, so we don’t have to commute, and our servers are hosted in an already carbon-neutral datacenter in the Netherlands (Leaseweb’s amazing AMS-01).

We looked for solutions to compensate our carbon footprint for the past year and fortunately there are quite a few non-profit organizations that will offer you to participate to projects helping develop sustainable energies all over the world, especially in developing countries, or even just initiatives as simple as reforestation.

We decided to get involved with the Fondation Goodplanet which was created by the photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

We are now really proud to announce that WebTranslateit is

We will keep making daily efforts to change our consuming habits and will collaborate further with the Fondation Goodplanet. Join us in the fight, we believe climate change is not a fatality.
