"This is a planetary crisis... we are ruining the ecosystem of the ocean," UN oceans chief Lisa Svensson told the BBC in a recent interview.
Yesterday, global citizens celebrated the World Environment Day. Commemorated every year on 5 June, World Environment Day was founded by the United Nations (UN) to encourage worldwide awareness about the environment and promote actions to protect it.
Every year, World Environment Day is focused around a specific theme that has a deep impact on the environment. This year, the theme is beating plastic pollution.
Sadly, we are all aware of the massive use of plastic that characterizes our modern, daily lives (Catalonia, where Submer’s offices are located, banned the use of plastic bags as of January 2016). What we tend to forget, however, is the real impact of plastic and of BPA (bisphenol A), the chemical used to make plastic products, on human health and environment.
Even though we do not produce plastic, we are conscious of the effects of Data Center business on climate change and, consequently, on the environment. That is why we designed a solution that leverages a biodegradable SmartCoolant and allows reuse of the heat generated. The SmartPod and the CryptoPod offer our customers a chance to reduce costs, improve performances, all while being socially and environmentally responsible.
Last April 22, on Earth Day, we already explained our philosophy, our credo. At Submer, we believe, without being preachy, that there is a greener way to do business. What we are promoting is a relatively new idea of business that acknowledges the importance of profit while promoting social and environmental responsibility. We strive for ever better efficiencies to usher in a new era of sustainable and practical data center cooling, and at the same time, we are constantly reminding ourselves about our social and environmental responsibility.
Let’s play an active role and live and do business in an intelligent, green way. We hope to have a little more about our social and environmental initiatives to share with you next week.
