The idea of carbon accounting is starting to take hold in numerous industry sectors where CO2 intensity is a major factor. It covers a range of different practices such as calculating gas emissions, financial carbon accounting, which looks at giving carbon a financial market value, and historical - balance sheet - management.
This presentation looks at approaches to understanding carbon quantification from a data center perspective, both as a service provider and as an enterprise end-user, which can steer the industry towards effective mitigation decisions, and away from poor ones.
