Green Hosting – All-round sustainability at all levels

Consistently. Act. Consciously.

For us as a hosting provider and data center operator, green hosting means orienting our services towards maintaining and optimising a positive ecological balance. With our sustainability concept KeyEco, we want to set a clearly visible sign for conscious action in the sense of our environment and consistently go one step further.

Sustainability for us includes environmentally friendly business activities at all levels – from the ecological operation of our data centres and hosting products with green electricity, to consciously sustainable processes in the office and everyday working life, to our social commitment both within the company and for our society.

Environmentally friendly hosting

Through various methods, we are able to operate our data centres in a particularly efficient and resource-saving manner and therefore keep COemissions as low as possible.

Eco hosting with green electricity

We only use electricity from renewable energy sources.

  • our data centers are powered by 100 % green electricity, which is generated from CO2-neutral and environmentally friendly hydropower
  • in ecological terms, the electricity produced from running water is one of the most natural forms of electricity generation
  • all Keyweb hosting services are based on sustainable energy supply

Energy saving

We achieve energy efficiency on several levels.

  • our data centres only use the latest generation of climate cabinets – achieving energy savings of over 30 % by using free-running, backward-curved fans
  • the use of infinitely variable EC fans additionally improves energy balance, with up to 65% more efficiency compared to a 3-phase motor
  • at low outside temperatures, the free cooling also makes it possible for cooling to be generated completely by outside air, and thus compression energy can be saved
  • thanks to the principle of cold and warm aisles in combination with cold aisle containment , less and less energy is used
  • when it comes to choosing hardware and network components, we also save electricity by relying on state-of-the-art and especially energy efficient-verified brand hardware

Green hosting through sustainability in everyday business

At Keyweb, sustainability ranges from the actions of each individual employee and the execution of projects, security, compliance and business practices through to dealing with stakeholders and taking responsibility for products and processes along the entire value chain. In the spirit of Green IT, we take a variety of measures to promote a more environmentally conscious use of existing information and communication technology in our offices.

  • our offices are equipped with FSC®-certified furnishings and energy-saving lamps
  • "green inventory" positively influences the wellbeing of employees and the indoor climate
  • all tools comply with the eco standard, have the Blue Angel label or are FSC®-certified
  • the use of reusable materials and sustainable waste management are a matter of course for us
  • only cleansers and hygiene products on an ecological basis are used in the premises
  • we source our coffee from controlled organic cultivation

  • heating our office space in a controlled and efficient manner
  • avoiding paper as far as possible in order to try to live up to the status of a paperless office. Misprints are used as notepaper if possible
  • utilisation of power-saving potential through, for example, the use of laptops and stand-by mode
  • using of our printers in the resource-saving mode. With the donation of empties for empty printer cartridges we support McDonald's Kinderhilfe

  • Keywebs central inner-city location allows our employees and customers to reach us by public transport, bicycle or on foot
  • multi-regional meetings take place via telephone or video conferences to the greatest extent possible
  • if it is not possible to avoid external appoints for larger events, methods including public transport or car sharing are used
  • our customers receive their invoices electronically via the customer service centre; only the first invoice is additionally sent by post. We generally always choose climate-neutral delivery for our post

Corporate responsibility

Our employees are what make our company. They are the people who give Keyweb a face and its value. It is a special concern of ours to know that our employees are part of Keyweb in the long term and to continuously promote their qualifications.
