We are committed to advancing sustainability, equity, and trust by embedding ESG into everything we do at Original-Network.com. Every blog post we publish, and every reader we empower is an opportunity to help build a more sustainable, equitable, and secure future.
We recognize that we cannot do this alone, which is why we’ll need to co-innovate with our entire stakeholder ecosystem including hosting provider, partners, and our broader communities.
Sustainability is core to Original Network’s values, which is evident based on our legacy of decarbonizing digital infrastructure for our own operations. We set technology-based targets to guide our emissions reduction goals for the Blog: Green host and make the site more efficient.
