Green Data Centres

Driving Efficiency in Design and Performance through Sustainability

As more enterprises focus on energy efficiency to cut data centre costs, more are looking to providers with a solid sustainability strategy who can offer cost-effective, green data centre options. For colocation customers, better use of energy delivers lower costs.

Our data centres are designed to require fewer construction materials to construct whilst delivering industry-leading PUE (power usage effectiveness) levels-resulting in a smaller carbon footprint when compared to similar data centres. Our current standards have delivered data centres with design PUEs as low as 1.12. We utilise water-efficient and free cooling technologies and tap into reclaimed water supplies where available to minimise our use of potable water. We continue to expand our ability to reduce the carbon footprint of our data centres as they become operational by pairing our facilities with sources of renewable energy.

Since 2009, more than half of our certified projects have received Gold or Platinum-equivalent ratings. These initiatives are shown to deliver increased asset value and lower operating costs for our customers.
