Carbon neutral web host
This is a term often used among green web hosts to describe the carbon footprint of the company. Carbon neutral means the energy consumption of a particular activity has been equalized in one of two ways:
a) Carbon credits have been purchased equal to the energy consumption (effectively removing the exhausted carbon from the atmosphere through scrubbing or reclamation programs).
b) Renewable energy credits have been purchased equal to the consumption of non-renewable fuels (effectively inserting clean energy into the grid).
