pair Networks has measured, reduced, and offset its carbon footprint. All of pair Networks' operations, including data centers, support operations, development labs, administrative facilities, employee commutes, and business travel are 100% carbon neutral. Additionally, pair Networks is offset by 100% renewable energy. Our commitment to sustainability is better for the natural environment, great for our employees, and awesome for our customers.
During our most recent office renovations, we used earth-friendly materials such as cork flooring, recycled blue jean insulation, and biodegradable paints and other coatings that contained no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our offices are cleaned with only non-toxic, natural and organic, allergen-free cleaning products. This promotes good employee health and does not introduce dangerous chemicals into our indoor environment.
We reduce waste via a company-wide recycling program. We recycle materials such as aluminum cans, glass, household batteries, paper, and plastic. All of the paper products we purchase are made from 100% recycled content and are either 100% recyclable or compostable. We reuse and repurpose hardware for as long as we reasonably can. Once a piece of equipment has reached the end of its useful life, we donate parts or entire systems to various organizations, or send it off for recycling. Any hardware that can't be reused or recycled is disposed of in an environmentally responsible way.
Our workplace policies require employees to turn off the lights in areas that are not occupied, turn off and unplug devices that are not actively being used, allow idle workstations to enter sleep mode, and shut off workstations when they won't be in use for a day or more. Our workstation hardware is chosen for its materials. We look for components that have low toxicity, are safe for recycling or disposal, and consume little power during routine use.
