ParaFX.com is constantly upgrading
hardware to improve and add service offerings. Instead of filling landfills
with usable computer components,
ParaFX.com has adopted
repurpose/recycle policies. Such efforts include:
Repurpose -. Previously
in service hardware is often relegated to be used as replacement parts
for existing infrastructure. Most often hardware that is no longer
suitable for production is re-purposed for development and testing
systems to reduce our footprint on landfills.
Recycling - All
working computer hardware is kept in our storage facility. At various
points in our fiscal year, ParaFX.com donates system administrator time
to building usable computer systems from extra parts. These computers
are provided to individuals, schools, and various other charitable
Any hardware that can
not be donated or repurposed is not disposed of into landfills. We
take all old hardware to reputable recycling programs that properly and
safely recycle the hardware.
In the interests of
security - all data hardware is retained (hard drives, tapes etc) by us
to ensure client safety. We then destroy all such hardware to
ensure that no confidential information can be recovered.
Our office operates on a mandate of minimal paper use / paper waste.
Over 85% of our vendors provide us electronic correspondence and
invoicing to minimize use of paper products and reduce waste.
operates all communications internally using electronic methods. No
Memos, internal newsletters or printed material is used within our
office and staff. All correspondence is conducted via email or
other electronic means.
Recycled Material -
All paper products used
by ParaFX.com for customer invoicing contain a minimum 60% post consumer
ParaFX.com values our
customers’ privacy. As such, all paper correspondence from customers is
filed, or disposed of via secure shredding practices.
Energy conservation is probably the most difficult to overcome in
our operation. As ParaFX.com operates its own data centre, we have
many energy users within our operation. However, all efforts are
made to conserve where possible as well.
ParaFX.com conducts its office business from the same facility as
our data centre. Our office centre resides in the same location as
our datacentre. The office portion employs its own separate
infrastructure. We also operate remote external monitoring of our
services, which is accomplished by an additional infrastructure, but
residing in the same location.
Office Lighting - ParaFX.com makes use of efficient lighting such
as compact fluorescents and reduced fluorescent lighting. During
daytime operation, blinds are opened and desks are positioned to remove
glare. This allows us to use daylight rather than thousands of
watts of office lighting. If additional lighting is needed,
ParaFX.com has energy wise desk lamps, and low light options to
conserve, again to not have to light the entire office space like many
Other Conservation - ParaFX.com also understands that customer
serving equipment (servers, network devices etc) must remain powered on
at all times. However internal equipment such as printers,
workstations, monitors etc do not need to be powered when not in use.
We therefore turn off all equipment when not in use. This includes
printers, fax machines, photocopiers, workstations, etc. Again,
its a minor issue, but can make a difference. All monitors on
workstations are low energy flat screens, as traditional CRT monitors
consume approximately 75% more power.
These are just some of the ways ParaFX.com has chosen to conduct
business in a sound and ecologically conscious work environment. As
always we are open to, and indeed encourage suggestions from our
our site for future methods and ways we can work together for a
