Our commitment and our initiatives to protect the environment.
The history of Hosting Solutions began more than twenty years ago. Our growth has taken us through various stages and goals, pursuing increasingly important objectives.
Today we have decided to dedicate our resources and energy not only to our customers, but also to an asset that belongs to everyone: the environment.
We have been using 100% renewable energy for some time now and we have designed our third data center to have the least possible impact on the environment by using technologically advanced and efficient solutions.
By the end of 2022, cGenesys Informatica s.r.l., owner of the Hosting Solutions brand, will be certified ISO 14001, which certifies the environmental management process of companies.
Proudly with Sea Shepherd
The partnership with Sea Shepherd Italia stems from the awareness that we can contribute even more by actively supporting an increasing number of initiatives aimed at protecting the environment and, in this case, our seas.
The purchase of our services will fund Operations SISO to take strong actions in order to live together for a greener present and a more sustainable future.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is a non-profit organisation dedicated to safeguarding fish and marine environmentsand is registered in the USA. Members call themselves eco-pirates and sail under the Dutch flag, under which campaigns are undertaken based on the 1982 United Nations World Charter for Nature and various other laws (see also: Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats).
Sea Shepherd uses direct action tactics and information campaigns to protect marine life and inform the public about its situation.
In collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment, the Coast Guard, the Catania Harbour Office and the Milazzo branch of the Guardia di Finanza, Operation Siso aims to protect the delicate ecosystem of the Aeolian Islands archipelago from illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing; in particular, from the use of "Spadare" nets, known to have killed Sperm Whales, Turtles, Tunas, Swordfish, Sharks and marine mammals until they were banned in 2003 and from the indiscriminate use of FADs. This fishing system is lethal for Caretta Caretta turtles and other species that often get caught in it during migration routes
In 2017, crossing the Aeolian Islands archipelago, a young sperm whale remained entangled in an illegal “squadrara” fishing net. The Coast Guard spent many hours struggling to free him but couldn’t save his life. SISO was found dead along the coast of Milazzo Cape, with the net still coiled around the tail fin and with the stomach full of plastic, by the marine biologist Carmelo Isgrò. Carmelo decided to call the sperm whale with the name SISO, in honor of the dear friend who helped him retrieve the sperm whale, and who died in a car accident in those same day. The death of SISO due to an illegal drift net, is a clear signal of the presence of illegal fishing gear in the Aeolian archipelago.
