At Claranet, we firmly believe that being successful in business is also about being ethical and taking a responsible approach to the environment, the wider community and especially to our employees.
CEO - Claranet Group
For many years, Claranet and Claranet employees have been involved in fundraising activities, raising money for different charities.
Claranet joins firms such as Microsoft, Google and Facebook in the IMLG to help tackle record youth unemployment in the UK.
We are proud to be able to contribute to the ongoing success of the Prince's Trust.
We have also worked with
Zero-carbon energy data centres
We partner with suppliers and companies who are committed to the delivery of your services with minimal environmental impact in mind. Our data centre services are certified ‘green’ and use zero-carbon energy. We work with data centre facilities from Global Switch 2, Telehouse and Telecity, who all have a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. Electricity used at our Global Switch site is sourced from zero-carbon sustainable sources. This ensures that carbon is not emitted in the production of the energy used to power our data centres or the associated cooling and UPS systems.
Like any business we sometimes need to retire old hardware. Whilst this is great for our customers, who benefit from improved speed and reliability of service, it does mean we have to deal with redundant electronic equipment responsibly. We try to recycle all old equipment internally. If we are unable to recycle redundant hardware, we give the equipment to registered contractors that operate in accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. All proceeds from the sale of redundant Claranet equipment go to charity.
Claranet is also committed to encouraging a paperless office. We have recycling bins placed throughout our offices – for plastic bottles, Tetra-Pak cartons, paper, cardboard, cans and batteries.
