Conservation & Green IT

Sustainability, efficiency, environmental and social responsibility are central to Moser’s company culture.

Moser is involved heavily with both of the local communities of Indianapolis and Baltimore, leading many efforts to help give back. By being responsible with resources, Moser has given back to the environment consistently. LED lights are deployed both outside and inside, using 75% less power than standard lights and lasting significantly longer. Another important step Moser takes is to encourage the recycling of waste, promoting reuse, or proper disposal methods. These steps taken together help lower Moser’s carbon footprint.

As green technology evolves, Moser continually increases their avenues for sustainability. Incentivizing electric and hybrid vehicles, the corporate headquarters features car charging stations. Included is an access pass for employees, enabling free and timely recharges for their low emission vehicles. Electricity takes the strain off more polluting power sources, motivating Moser to switch to rechargeable batteries to power wireless computer accessories. Disposable batteries account for over 20% of hazardous waste in landfills. To combat this statistic, Moser recycles batteries and has replaced all disposable batteries in the workplace with more efficient, rechargeable options.

S1E9: Green IT - Malinda Lowder Discusses Dramatically Reducing Energy Usage To Save Money And The Planet

It's not easy being Green. Especially in Technology. A technology company has all of the normal environmental concerns as any other office such as using paper, resources like lighting and heating an office space. But tech has more responsibilities.

Computers use a lot of power. Data centers full of Servers use a lot of power. They produce a lot of heat that has to be cooled all year round. And computer hardware uses a lot of resources in their production. Parts of computer equipment are made from toxic materials such as lead, mercury, and PCBs. Those need to be responsibly sourced and disposed of properly.

Green IT is a complicated ball of string to unravel.
