Panel: The journey towards a circular economy for the data center industry

Circular thinking when applied to the data center can not only significantly reduce the environmental footprint of enterprise computing, but also make a huge difference to the bottom line. And with giants like Google and large OEMs restating their commitment to advancing circular principles and minimizing waste, circular business practices are gaining momentum across the industry.

So what does this mean for data centers? How can we design out waste, design for repairability, and keep products and materials in circulation for as long as possible? This expert panel, involved in the CEDaCI Project, will share how their network of key stakeholders are tackling the challenge of developing a secure supply chain of critical raw materials to ensure sustainable data center operation.
