Ex2, Internet, global warming and you (our customers)

Many researchers predict that by 2030 the Internet will be the world's largest source of pollution. As a host, we are of course in the middle of this ecological disaster. While our goal is obviously to reduce our carbon footprint to zero through the actions mentioned above, we also want to contribute sustainably to the clean-up of our planet and the necessary awareness of our industry.

Green hosting, what does it matter?

Does hosting my site with a company that uses renewable energy make a difference?

Today, data centers represent 2% of global carbon emissions, as much as the aviation industry! And the problem is getting more and more serious. By 2040, data centres will produce 14% of global carbon emissions, the same as the United States. It's time to roll up your sleeves and do something!

By purchasing a hosting plan from us, you are certain to have a hosting powered by renewable energy at no additional cost to you. Why not be part of the solution rather than the problem?

And for those who wish to get more involved, we have teamed up with Solar Aid to provide green accommodation, a gesture for people already in need, who will suffer the consequences of global warming long before us. And 3 solar lamps for a family that has no access to electricity is a radically transformed life. Help us change the world!

100% powered by renewable energy
Energy Sources

Ex2 has taken the initiative to go green by purchasing 100% green renewable energy to power its data centers, web servers, desktops, laptops and desktops. We are also a partner member of the Green Web Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate the transition to a completely green Internet.

A local vision of ecology

Our environmental awareness is at the heart of everything we do. Our data centres run on renewable energy, but we don't stop there. At Ex2, we appreciate :
  • a paperless organization, from invoices, to customer orders and specifications, we manage everything on our screens.
  • a kitchen without plates and disposable cutlery. Ceramic cups and mugs. An espresso machine without capsules.
  • videoconference meetings whenever possible, to avoid unnecessary air or car travel.
  • modern, energy-efficient computers in our offices that use technologies similar to those we deploy on our servers.
  • a generous home-working policy. Why take the road to find yourself in front of the same screen you have at home.
  • a credit for the purchase of a bicycle or any other means of electric transport.

Ex2 is part of Stripe Climate, a coalition of businesses accelerating carbon removal

No company can stop climate change by itself. Stripe Climate aggregates funds from forward-thinking businesses around the world to increase demand for carbon removal.

Carbon removal is critical to counteract climate change

To prevent the most catastrophic effects of climate change, we should aim to limit global average temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, which corresponds to reducing global annual CO₂ emissions from about 40 gigatons per year as of 2018, to net zero by 2050.
To accomplish this, the world will likely need to both radically reduce the new emissions we put into the air, and remove carbon already in the atmosphere.
Historical emissions via Global Carbon Project,1 "Current path" shows SSP4-6.0,2,3 removal pathways adapted from CICERO.4 For simplicity this chart only shows CO₂, though the modeled scenarios account for other greenhouse gas emissions, all of which will need to be reduced.

However, carbon removal is behind

Existing carbon removal solutions such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration are important, but they alone are unlikely to scale to the size of the problem. New carbon removal technologies need to be developed—ones that have the potential to be high volume and low cost by 2050—even if they aren’t yet mature.
Today, carbon removal solutions face a chicken-and-egg problem. As early technologies, they’re more expensive, so don’t attract a critical mass of customers. But without wider adoption, they can’t scale production to become cheaper.
Early adopters can change the course of carbon removal

Early purchasers can help new carbon removal technologies get down the cost curve and up the volume curve. Experience with manufacturing learning and experience curves has shown repeatedly that deployment and scale beget improvement, a phenomenon seen across DNA sequencing, hard drive capacity, and solar panels.

This thinking shaped our initial commitment and first purchases. If a broad coalition of like-minded buyers commits substantial investment, we’re optimistic that we can shift the trajectory of the industry and increase the likelihood the world has the portfolio of solutions needed.

We support a portfolio of emerging technologies that remove CO2 from the atmosphere

Stripe Climate works with a multidisciplinary group of scientific experts to find and evaluate the most promising carbon removal technologies. Below are two examples from our broader portfolio.
Climeworks uses renewable geothermal energy and waste heat to capture CO2 directly from the air, concentrate it, and permanently sequester it underground in basaltic rock formations with Carbfix. Climeworks will remove 322 tons of CO2 on behalf of Stripe Climate businesses.
