ISO 14001 specifies the requirements for an environmental management system that can be used to enhance environmental performance for an organization to be more sustainable.
We ensure that best available techniques (BAT) are used on new builds, upgrades and end of life (EOL) replacement - where practical and possible. By implementing an energy and power management system (EPMS) we closely track our power usage efficiency (PUE) across the estate.
We recognise the significance of being energy compliant and will continue to meet our commitments on energy efficiency and lower PUE. Our VP led Energy Steering Group evaluate regulations and strategies across all DCS countries to implement energy efficiency best practice and behaviours. Specialist in energy and emissions are commissioned via the steering group to ensure continued compliance.
Within DCS, we promote and encourage the highest standards and best practices to improve (PUE). We:
“DCS is focused on energy efficiency; the social responsibilities of running a large data centre estate require a commitment to continuous improvement of PUE and reductions in environmental emissions.”
Colt DCS’s data centres are externally audited and have won numerous awards for energy efficiency covering operations and design standards.
