In a growing number of markets, certification is becoming an expected feature for project approval by local authorities. Our data centres are designed to require fewer raw materials to construct while delivering industry-leading PUE (power usage effectiveness) levels—resulting in a smaller carbon footprint when compared to similar data centres. Our current standards have delivered data centres with design PUEs as low as 1.12.

In water-constrained regions, we have pioneered the use of highly energy-efficient cooling systems that eliminate the use of water for cooling. These systems reduce demand on municipal potable water systems while delivering best-in-class energy efficiency, taking advantage of “free cooling” whenever conditions are right. This solution has resulted in estimated savings of more than 300 million gallons of water annually when compared to using chilled water systems.
