Retarus Press Release
Retarus offsets carbon footprint for services
Supporting the shift to renewable energy in Germany and around the world
In detail, Retarus is supporting four projects: establishing photovoltaic systems in India, constructing wind power facilities in India, aiding reforestation in Panama, and improving energy-efficiency in Ghana. These projects are thoroughly certified in accordance with “Gold Standard” and all certificates are ex-post, meaning that the reduction in emissions has already taken place. The CO2 savings are credited exclusively to Retarus – there is no double counting. All the projects are of a long-term nature. Retarus is also involved in local projects through SWM, which are focused on the construction, operation, and/or maintenance of renewable energy facilities.
“After already opting exclusively for green power for over 15 years and having always run our data centers as efficiently as possible in terms of power consumption – for instance by using energy-saving geothermal heat pumps – we are now also compensating for the emissions over which we have no influence,” says Martin Hager, founder and CEO of Retarus. “In this way, we ensure that our customers are not only benefiting from our powerful, secure, data protection compliant services, but also conduct their business communication with suppliers and customers in a climate neutral manner.”
