The global summit on data center sustainability

Where does the data center fit into a zero-carbon future?


The next decade will challenge the data center industry to find even more innovative ways to reduce its environmental impact as climate change policy takes center stage and drives a new era of carbon conscious behaviour where all buying decisions will be based on sustainability criteria.

This conference brings together major data center operators, energy professionals, policy makers and technology innovators to explore the CSR challenges they face, the renewable energy alternatives, sustainable supply chains, carbon accounting and the latest technologies as the industry strives to find its place in a more circular economy. Sessions include:

  • Optimizing server refresh cycles: The case for circular economy as Moore’s Law slows
  • How do data center operators responsibly navigate through RECS & PPAs
  • Where does digital infrastructure sit in the net zero investment landscape?
  • Can cleantech overcome the data center’s conservative approach to innovation?
