All types of businesses, whether they are large or small have a responsibility to reduce their impact on our environment. It is our commitment to continually look to invest in new technologies that allow us to provide a great service to our customers, but also support the planet. We are consistently reacting to social responsible guidance on how Nimbus can become 100% green and powered by renewable energy, and we prefer to only work with suppliers with the same outlook as ours.
To provide an excellent service to our clients, we frequently replace hardware in our datacentres with the latest releases from our suppliers, but we have specifically chosen suppliers who not only provide great equipment, but also focus heavily on the importance of recycling this hardware, to help create the next generation of hardware.
We have the same approach with all our internal electronic equipment, which when no longer needed are recycled through registered contractors who operate in accordance with the Waste Electrical Equipment (WEEE) directive.
Moving away from electronic hardware, we have operated a paperless environment at Nimbus since the company started in 2011. All communication is issued via email and we have encouraged to the point of change that 99% of all our supplies do the same when conducting business with Nimbus.
