Colocation data center provider, Sabey Data Centers, has announced that it is commiting to reach net-zero carbon emissions by or before 2029 across its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.
The Science-Based Target Initiative (SBTi), a global body that aligns enterprise emission reduction efforts with climate science, last year validated Sabey’s target and methods to achieve a 50 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Significantly, the company is now increasing and accelerating its commitment to a 100 per cent reduction one year earlier.
Scope 1 focuses on direct emissions from operations, and Scope 2 includes indirect emissions from purchased electricity that powers its resilient data center infrastructure. Sabey will adopt industry-leading technology and techniques that align with its business objectives to meet its ambitious, portfolio-wide carbon emissions target.
Sabey asserts that they have long built and operated energy-efficient data centers that reduce environmental impact and align with its customers’ sustainability initiatives and renewable energy requirements.
“Sabey is an industry leader in energy-efficient solutions and low-cost, renewable power,” said John Sasser, Chief Technology Officer at Sabey Data Centers. “Unveiling our ambitious goal of net-zero emissions by or before 2029 aligns with our consistent, recognised record of sustainability.”
Sabey Data Centers has already taken the steps needed to become a more sustainable data center company. Among other initiatives, they are signatories to The Climate Pledge, a collaborative initiative committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2040, and members of the Green Lease Leader program, which recognises forward-thinking companies who foster high-performance by incorporating both energy efficiency and sustainability into daily operations.
