Key guidance on environmental sustainability metrics for data centres
Today many businesses are reporting on sustainability measures, and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) commitments, and data centre operators are required to meet strict criterion as part of the operational, request for information (RFI) and request for proposal (RFP) processes.
In fact, as the world becomes more automated and digital, the data centre industry is under-going rapid transformation, and as a result, energy consumption and overall environmental sustainability commitments have become a key focus for end-users.
The data centre sector has many unique characteristics that necessitate specialised measures when reporting sustainability, including high energy demands and power consumption, land, biodiversity, waste and water usage. Standardising these metrics helps owners and operators to report on sustainability more accurately, and will aid in both benchmarking and advancing a company’s sustainability journey. In this whitepaper we explore them in more detail.
