In a world of finite natural resources, energy use is an issue of increasing importance. By consuming less, we can help to reduce the environmental impacts associated with C02 and other emissions from power generation plants.
We are taking action to reduce the impact that our facilities have on the environment throughout their lifespan, by:
- Implementing energy efficiency programs in our data centres as well as introducing Merlin – the world's most sustainable data centre
- Active monitoring of power consumption, across facilities to identify opportunities to reduce usage
- Introducing advanced energy-saving systems such as automatic switch-off lights, energy-saving computer monitors, building management systems (BMS) and building energy management systems (BEMS),
- Providing training in environmental compliance for key facilities and property managers.
Energy policies are currently being developed and deployed to further reduce consumption.
