We are mindful of our impact on climate, flora and fauna habitats. We strive for reducing and preventing our footprint, and consuming renewable energy in everything we do.
As an Australian-based business we are embarrassed by the climate crisis denialist posture of majorities in our states' and federal governments. We oppose their legislation, inaction, obfuscation, and use of our tax monies for the purpose of supporting further development of the non-renewable fuel burning industry.
We believe in science and that we form part of a climate system in which we cause devastating imbalances with our behaviour. We believe that small decisions we make every day can and should contribute to restoring our planet and its natural world. We are committed to, e.g., minimising waste, emissions and other pollution, conserving and consuming energy from renewable sources wherever possible for us, and contracting services from organisations that share our goals, demonstrate an understanding of the concept of circular economy, and a concrete strategy for a path forward.
We strive for applying this thinking in everything we do, buy and build, including our own software. Our choices for a Jamstack application architecture and serverless computing not only make JXL blazing fast and keep your data safe in your site, they also have a reduced environmental impact compared to that of traditional SaaS. JXL web pages are prebuilt once instead of rebuilt again and again for every visit, and JXL for Jira Cloud assets are served from an efficient global edge network. Minimal, event-driven computing, running only when required, generally demands a fraction of the amount of energy used by always-on dedicated servers.
