Data center colocation providers have focused on improving energy efficiency over the last two decades. Not only has this been good for business, but good for the planet as well.

Today, the focus is expanding beyond efficiency into environmental sustainability including renewable energy, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water, waste, and land & biodiversity, all of which benefits not only the clients, but the facilities themselves.

This whitepaper explores the four key drivers behind this increased emphasis on sustainability, including:

  1. Colocation tenant requirements
  2. Government regulations
  3. Business value
  4. ESG investment.
