Our Eco Policy

At Layer Systems, we firmly believe that our operations must reflect our commitment to the environment.

Despite not having a physical office, our commitment to sustainability goes beyond the traditional confines. By setting goals and integrating sustainability into every aspect of our business, from hosting to day-to-day operations, we can make a positive impact on our planet.

Our Environmental Manifesto

“We pledge to only partner with vendors who have a net zero policy, aligning with the global efforts to combat climate change. We are actively designing our systems to consume less energy during off-peak periods through innovative auto-scaling solutions. One example of this is some proprietary tooling we’ve developed to detect quieter usage period and scale down our compute to align with this.
As a SaaS company, our energy consumption is virtual but significant, nonetheless. Our goal is to consume only what we need in cloud services, optimising for efficiency without compromising on quality.”

Partner Selection and Hosting Targets

The partners we choose to work with reflect our values. We always choose to collaborate with those who share our commitment to the environment. As mentioned, we aim to exclusively partner with net zero companies, creating a chain of sustainability that extends beyond our own operations.

In our technology partners, are looking for the following:

  • 100% Renewable Energy target
  • Water positive target
  • Zero-Waste Certification target
  • Net-Zero Deforestation from data centres

Work From Home Culture

Our remote work culture is not only a response to modern working trends but also a part of our eco policy. By eliminating the need for a physical office, we reduce our carbon footprint through decreased commuting, office energy usage, and physical waste. Our employees enjoy the flexibility and balance that comes with remote work, and the environment benefits from our reduced impact.

We believe that every step, however small, makes a significant difference. Our mission is to set an example in our industry and show that we can all play a role in creating a more sustainable future.
