A green hosting does very little for the environment in my opinion. Sometimes it's even ridiculous; some hosting provider (can't remember the name) said they're GREEN because they don't have an office.
Of course hosting can't be completely green however hosts offset that with 'green' efforts / investments.
Having a completely remote work force would contribute to being a green company as there is less waste and no daily commutes for every employee and so on. No, it does not mean they're 100% planet friendly though they're more so than a company of equal size where every employee needed to commute to an office and back daily.
Edit: Just noticed you bumped this thread from last year.. good job :\
