About the Environment
Hello, we are a BI consulting company, you may wonder why we have an "Environment" section in our website.
Here at PowerUp we strongly believe that our planet should receive a bit more respect from us humans, and that we still have little time to learn it.
While big changes can be difficult, there are plenty of small things we can do, as single individuals or companies to make a difference.
We decided, in our daily activities, to try reduce as much as possible the energy consuption and to use, whenever possible renewable enrgy.
We avoid traveling when possible, using technology instead, such as video conferencing, remote collaboration tools etc.
Recently we also moved our website to a geen host, it's a hosting company in the USA that powers its data centers using only wind generated energy.They provide a great service for a fair price, like many other hosting companies, but they are committed to reduce the negative human impact on our planet.
Sometimes "going green" does not mean paying more or doing things the hard way, it's just a matter of choice.
As a BI consulting company, our job is to help our customers to make the best decisions, this could be one of them.
Some interesting data is available on the web about trends in energy consuption, environmental changes etc.
We are in the process of collecting some of this data and planning to make it available in this website, you can have a preview (it's a "sneak peeck" on our dev environment) here. Data is sourced from the World Bank website.
