The CarbonNeutral Company Voted Best Offset Retailer for Fourth Consecutive Year

Quality, Innovation and Client-Centric Delivery Recognised by Carbon Market Professionals

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- The CarbonNeutral Company (www.carbonneutral.com) has been voted Best Offset Retailer for the fourth consecutive year, in a survey conducted by Environmental Finance. (www.environmental-finance.com/) The award, voted for by carbon market industry professionals, recognises the company's consistent and continual excellence in delivering high quality, innovative solutions for its clients' environmental and sustainability needs.

Stephen Killeen, CEO of The CarbonNeutral Company, said "It is an incredible honour to be recognised as the Best Offset Retailer by our industry peers for the fourth consecutive year. Our success is a direct result of our collaboration with some of the most forward-thinking and action-oriented clients in the world and the most innovative projects. It is this combination which makes a positive impact on the environment and on the communities in the areas of the world which need it most. The strong relationships we have developed with our partners and suppliers, and the commitment of our team to excellence in the sourcing and procuring of top quality projects, enables our clients to incorporate that high level of quality into their environmental programmes and make a significant impact on climate change and people's lives."

Mr. Killeen went on to say, "We count ourselves extremely fortunate to work with two of the highest quality organisations who, like us, have been recognised for their outstanding work in making a positive environmental impact: Microsoft which has won Best Corporate Offset Programme for its innovation and commitment to a diverse, impactful and global offset programme; and TIST, a community reforestation project based in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and India, who we have worked with since 2011, which has won the new award of Best Offset Project."

The CarbonNeutral Company has contracted with more than 290 projects in 40 countries since its founding in 1997. Most recently the company has worked closely with its clients to use carbon finance to build resilience into their supply chains and commit funds to projects at their planning stage in order to create a closer alignment with their wider business objectives. Marks and Spencer, a leading UK retailer, has recently worked closely with The CarbonNeutral Company to provide carbon financing to UNICEF's new cookstoves project in Bangladesh, which will deliver not only reduced carbon emission but also significant health benefits, particularly to children.

The CarbonNeutral Company has experienced an average annual growth of 30% from 2009 to 2013 and, based on the first six months of 2014, this growth is set to continue. Zubair Zakir, Director of Sourcing for The CarbonNeutral Company, observed: "Our sourcing desk reviewed 113 million tonnes of carbon credits last year, representing a significant percentage of what was available on the voluntary market. Our success is based on combining that comprehensive project assessment and review process with a wide network of relationships that gives clients the confidence that we can create solutions that will meet their individual needs; particularly with the growing emphasis we are seeing on biodiversity protection, improving health, managing water impacts and community focused projects."

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
