Boston releases carbon-offset PCs

PC maker Boston has launched a range of “climate-neutral” servers and workstations.

PC maker Boston has launched a range of “climate-neutral” servers and workstations.

The energy-efficient products are linked to a carbon-offset programme Boston has signed with an independent CO2 offset provider Climate Care.

The deal will ensure that the maximum amount of CO2 produced by using a Boston CN-Superserver or CN-Workstation over three years will be offset by reductions made through a range of projects in renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Boston said this would not only fight climate change but also bring benefits to communities.

More details on the Climate Care green projects have not been disclosed, but Boston promises more details at this week’s Cebit technology show in Hanover, where the servers and workstations are being demonstrated.

Boston uses both Intel and AMD processors in its platforms. HP has also just launched a range of green PCs.
