Sustainable data centres and the role of self-regulation

The data centre sector has been vilified – perhaps unfairly – due to the carbon footprint of its operations. What have been less highlighted are the advances in data centre infrastructure efficiency which have enabled increases in productivity across a wide range of industries far outweighing the sector’s direct energy use. As the effects of the climate emergency become more apparent, the data centre sector is taking additional steps to mitigate its GHG emissions, from sourcing green utility supplies to the reduction of fossil-fuel powered equipment and use of more environmentally-friendly energy storage systems. This presentation will cover the importance of self-regulation and the Carbon Pact in achieving the goal of carbon net-zero data centres by 2030.
