ISHIR is making strides to conserve energy and better our environment.
By using computer technology and resources wisely, ISHIR is becoming more energy efficient while using renewable resources in a sustainable manner. ISHIR is becoming “GREEN” in following ways:
- Use Efficient Servers
Power-efficient Servers are currently being used to efficiently power and cool data centers. By utilizing the standby mode on the servers, power demand is lowered significantly.
By combining and virtualizing servers, the demand for energy and hardware is substantially decreased. Virtualization lowers energy consumption while reducing the amount of equipment needed. Virtualization also allows a single computer to run multiple operating systems and applications, as opposed to old x86 computer hardware.
- Buy Energy Star Compliant Systems
Energy Star-certified equipment is being purchased to replace inefficient equipment.
- Use Sleep Mode
Monitors, Printers, and Servers are all enabled to use sleep mode to conserve energy as well. Machines are set up to automatically revert to sleep mode after not being used for a significant amount of time.
- Enable Remote Access
ISHIR utilizes remote access tools, making it possible to work from home and to lower carbon dioxide emissions for commuters.
- Virtual Meetings
In an attempt to lower costs and emissions, ISHIR promotes web-based meetings and communication. As an international company, web-based meetings are essential to reduce travel.
- Flat Screen
At ISHIR, outdated CRT monitors are being replaced with energy efficient LCD/LED flat-screen monitors.
- Power Management Settings
User power management settings are being implemented by management and staff to encourage energy efficiency at work and at home.
ISHIR believes in reusing and recycling materials when possible. This includes everything from printer cartridges, paper, plastic, glass to water bottles. Recycling containers are conveniently located in and around ISHIR office to make recycling easy and accessible.
- Dispose Responsibly
Old equipment unable to be recycled is disposed of in an eco-friendly manner.
ISHIR is dedicated to preserving our environment. By adapting to new energy efficient technology and continually educating ourselves on the issues, ISHIR is constantly evolving and becoming more environmentally friendly every day.
