Sustainable, climate-neutral, resource-saving

innus GmbH Sustainability

In cooperation with myclimate, a non-profit foundation established in Switzerland in 2006, innus is committed to climate protection. We identify the CO2 drivers in our company and derive reduction potentials. We offset all CO2 consumption by investing in climate protection projects abroad. We are planning to reforest an area of woodland in the Sauerland region in 2024.

In a first step, all company processes were analyzed in order to determine the company's own CO2 emissions. This allowed us to see very precisely what resources are consumed by setting up and operating a workplace, office infrastructure, travel or energy consumption.

As part of a consistently sustainable corporate strategy, the circular economy is of central importance to innus. Our business approach to the use of cloud services follows the principle of "shared services". No bank has to maintain its own infrastructure, which is geared towards peak utilization, but instead uses central infrastructures that can be used variably. Cloud computing therefore massively reduces CO2 consumption - which is good for the climate and your wallet. Our employees have been working from home even before coronavirus. Being remote means avoiding long journeys to the Frankfurt site. Again, good for the climate.

For this commitment, innus was recognized by myclimate as a climate-neutral company. Detailed information on myclimate and the projects that innus supports can be found on the organization's homepage.

ScaleUp Technologies

Our partner ScaleUp is one of the pioneers in the field of sustainable digitalization in Germany. Since 2020, 100% of the electricity for ScaleUp data centers has been generated from renewable energies. ScaleUp is also a member of the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance (SDIA) and a signatory of the Climate Neutral Data Center Pact (CNDCP) to enable customers to achieve climate-neutral hosting as quickly as possible.

ScaleUP continues to rely increasingly on refurbished Open Compute (OCP) and rack scale hardware. The switch to the new hardware is doubly worthwhile, as OCP hardware is more powerful and significantly more efficient in operation. Secondly, the use of refurbished hardware saves up to 66% of the CO2e that would otherwise be generated by the manufacture of new hardware.
