Green IT

Myra Security is not only committed to the protection of digital processes, but also makes sustainability a top priority. That is why, for many years, we have been compensating our CO2 emissions wherever possible.

Why sustainability plays a role

Companies, government agencies, organizations of all sizes and also each individual user release greenhouse gases by having operational processes and using services. These emissions contribute to global warming, endangering our environment and our social sphere as a whole. This is why we see it as our duty to play an active role in the preservation of our planet – because climate change is probably one of the greatest challenges facing humanity.


The IT industry in particular, which has experienced enormous growth in the course of digitalization and continues to grow steadily, is becoming increasingly committed to sustainable business strategies. This is also urgently necessary in view of the enormous energy and resource requirements that data centers and hardware manufacturing have. Today, the carbon footprint left by our modern gadgets, internet services and supporting infrastructure already accounts for around 3.7 percent of global greenhouse emissions. This is roughly equivalent to the impact of the global aviation industry. It is estimated that ongoing digitalization will cause CO2 emissions from IT to increase by 100 percent through 2025.


Sustainability pays off for companies

  • Economical use of resources reduces operating cost

  • Lower costs create competitive advantages

  • Sustainability increases customer loyalty

  • Social and ethical working conditions motivate employees

The projects Myra supports

Together with ClimatePartner, Myra is committed to compensating our emissions. Our climate protection strategy is based on the greenhouse gas balance: To this end, CO2 emission sources are identified and potential ways of reducing these are determined. Myra offsets unavoidable emissions by supporting recognized climate protection projects.


In cooperation with ClimatePartner, Myra is committed to climate protection projects such as biomass plants in India and Brazil, solar energy in Namibia and water treatment in Madagascar and India.
