Market3 Goes Green

1 Web Server = 1 Gas-Hogging SUV

Total Equivalent Impact:
Removing 444 cars from the road for a year, or
Powering 321 homes with clean energy for a year, or
Saving 5,654 barrels of oil, or
Protecting 551 acres of forest for a year.

That’s correct; the average server produces the same emissions as a 15 mpg SUV.

Because of this, Market3 only uses green servers powered by renewable energy sources.  Our data centers are maintained by Google,  who matches 100% of the energy consumed by their global operations with renewable energy and maintains a commitment to carbon neutrality.  This includes Google’s data centers and Google Cloud where our hosting is maintained.  The cumulative effect of powering our data center with green energy is astounding.

Market3 Employees are Forced to Walk To Work!

It’s not really as bad as it sounds… many of our employees walk to work every single day as remote workers.  For over ten years, a good portion of our staff have gone virtual, working from home – long before COVID made it the thing to do.   How does that help with our green effort?

The EPA estimates the average passenger vehicle gets 20 MPG.  Each gallon emits 20 pounds of carbon dioxide.  Market3 employees were traveling about 170 miles per day. So…

170 Miles/Day = 42.5 Gallons Gas/Week = 850 Pounds of CO2/Week = 42,500 Lbs CO2/ Year.

It takes almost 4 acres of Douglas fir trees working an entire year to absorb that much CO2.

We’ve Got Our Head in the Clouds!

As of 2010 Market3 has turned off its energy hogging servers and moved all our company files to the Cloud.

Why?  Besides being more reliable with redundant backups, 24/7 onsite network engineers, and being accessible from anywhere in the world (we’re big on working pool-side), recent studies have shown Cloud Computing to reduce the IT carbon footprints by up to 90%.  With the world’s IT consuming 1-2% of the world’s energy, reducing that by such a significant amount is a good step forward. There’s Power in Numbers!

We’re small, but we’re trying to do our part!  We encourage our friends and clients to make similar efforts and together we’ll make quite a difference.
