Socl.gg is Green: Fighting Climate Change and Clean Energy Servers


Our Carbon Removal Journey

In a world where everyone's talking about saving the planet, socl.gg is stepping up! We're excited to share our plans to fight climate change. How? By committing 1% of our profits to removing carbon from the air. Plus, we're running our servers on the more-efficient ARM architecture, powered entirely by renewable green energy.


What is Carbon Removal?

Carbon removal is the process of removing CO₂ from the air/atmosphere as it's the main contributor to climate change. Here at socl.gg, we're using Stripe Climate, a program that allows companies to contribute to carbon removal projects while using Stripe's billing services.


How does it work?

Stripe Climate calculates the carbon footprint of every transaction we process. Then, it automatically purchases carbon removal credits from projects that remove carbon from the atmosphere. These projects include:

  • Direct Air Capture
  • Biochar
  • Afforestation

How We Make a Difference

Thanks to Stripe's climate option, every time you make a transaction on socl.gg 1% of our profits are automatically set aside for projects that tackle climate change head-on. From planting trees to using cool tech that captures carbon, we're making moves to create a better, greener world.


Our Servers are Green

We're also excited to announce that our servers are powered entirely by renewable energy. We're using the ARM architecture, which is more efficient than the x86 architecture used by most servers. This means that we can do more with less energy, and we're using green energy to do it!


Conclusion

We're excited to be part of the solution to climate change. We're committed to making a difference, and we're excited to see what the future holds. We hope you'll join us in our mission to create a better, greener world.
