No community nor company exists within a vacuum. We at Sobek Digital are committed to being both earth conscious and socially responsible participants in our global community. As such, we are constantly looking for initiatives we can support to enrich the world in a positive manner. Below are just a couple of our initiatives, but if you would like to suggest other ways we can help, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The greatest environmental impact of a hosting company is the electrical cost of maintaining the servers and server room. We offset more than 100% of our energy costs by supporting wind and solar energy initiatives here in the United States. This money supports the development of newer and better wind and solar gardens, both offsetting our energy costs and building for a better, cleaner tomorrow.
A portion of our proceeds supports digitization projects in emerging and third-world nations around the globe. These funds allow for preservation, digitization, and digital archiving of materials at risk as well as training and building human capacity to help build sustainable programs. While we currently support projects that are working on these goals, we hope to offer more direct funding to specific projects in the future.
