IT: Carbon NEUTRAL ONLINE SHOP
An online shop needs a powerful computer center equipped with servers, network technology and air conditioning to keep all equipment at operating temperature. This requires a lot of energy and produces carbon emissions.
Onlineprinters plays a pioneering role here, too: Thanks to our shop system partner WEBSALE and climate protection specialists ClimatePartner, all online shops of Onlineprinters GmbH are run in a carbon neutral manner.
This means that WEBSALE offsets 100 percent of all carbon emissions incurred by running the shop computer center, the administration buildings and the company cars through a certified climate protection project.
The climate offset project supported by WEBSALE supplies households in rural areas of West Kenya with new water filter systems. These water filters run without electricity and dispense with the energy-intensive practice of boiling water before use. This saves large quantities of fire wood and avoids the associated emission of greenhouse gases. Moreover, the project improves access to clean drinking water and consequently enhances the quality of life of the project participants.
One water treatment system provides fresh drinking water to a family of up to five. The offset quantities of WEBSALE alone enable the installation of about 50 water treatment systems per year, giving 250 persons access to clean drinking water.
