Is sustainability now a priority for colocation providers?
Global MTDC capacity by available power grew 62.4% in the five years through to 2019. By 2024, 451 Research forecasts another 35.2% growth. It is, perhaps, easy to see why the data center industry is coming under increased scrutiny as a major electricity consumer and greenhouse gas emitter.
A lot of work is being done, however, to develop comprehensive sustainability initiatives not only in response to shifting customer demand, but also globally recognized PUE metrics, operational resiliency, and meeting regulatory guidelines.

- Key demand-drivers for sustainability: regulation vs customer expectation
- Thinking sustainability first: the role of sustainable practices in procurement
- Sustainability beyond PUE: are current metrics sufficient?
- Sustainability as a competitive advantage
