Company is first in the telecommunications industry to realize this important milestone 

CHICAGO – October 5, 2021Peerless Network, a leading-edge global communications provider since 2008, has achieved a key milestone: the company is now carbon neutral. For the last several years, Peerless has focused on reducing the amount of power (and associated carbon dioxide emissions) required to operate its national IP-based network.

Carbon Neutral – or Net Zero Carbon – is a term used to describe the state of an entity (such as a company, service, product, or event), where the carbon emissions caused by them have been balanced out by funding an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere in the world. (Source:

“Peerless has been committed to a number of green initiatives for some time. I am very proud that our engineers and technical leadership made achieving carbon neutrality critical for our business. Further, being part of an industry that is making net zero carbon a priority is also noteworthy,” said John Barnicle, President & CEO of Peerless Network.

Peerless’ services inherently save on greenhouse gas emissions because they facilitate communication without having to travel or even commute. But Peerless didn’t stop there. The company minimized the power drawn by its equipment, colocated much of its equipment in data centers that procure large portions of their power from renewable resources, and is purchasing carbon offsets to neutralize the balance.

Many large telecommunications providers in the U.S. and around the world have announced plans to implement measures to achieve carbon neutrality. Most are projecting achievement between 2030 and 2040.

A longtime and successful provider of carrier services since 2008, Peerless began offering its telecommunications services to enterprise customers in 2019. With its own nationwide IP voice network, Peerless Network is trusted by enterprises, Fortune 500 companies, world-leading MVNOs and IXCs, and the nation’s largest CLECs. Peerless is dedicated to continuously expanding its network reach, including international locations, and strives to simplify how customers communicate. As a result of the company’s unprecedented growth, Peerless Network is expanding strategically while providing customized, scalable, and high-quality communications solutions that give businesses better quality, rates, and control. Through its Agent Program, Peerless now provides second-to-none support to partners, empowering them with true differentiators, including the Peerless Portal and the Peerless Maximizer. Peerless offers SD-WAN (SASE), Cloud PBX (UCaaS), SIP Trunking, Messaging, APIs, MS Teams Direct Routing, and other collaboration products and services.
