Where can I find a statement from DigitalOcean about their environmental impact, carbon footprint and so on? This is becoming a more and more important factor when choosing hosting providers.

I would also very much appreciate some detail on ANY efforts that Digital Ocean is putting forward to help offset environmental impacts. It helps achieve an organizational goal of our’s “Exclusively partner / contract with environmentally conscious vendors”. I fully respect that the process of hosting is inherently dependent on energy consumption.
