Colt Data Centre Services (DCS) has announced that its operations across the UK and Europe are fully powered by 100% renewable power. Colt DCS has also committed to providing green power to sister company Colt Technology Services and its customers using DCS data centres in the region, in an effort to help them also reduce their own carbon emissions. Across the UK and Europe, Colt DCS currently operates 17 carrier neutral data centres, with three in London.
These pledges align with Colt DCS and Colt Technology Services’ joint commitment to becoming a market leader in sustainability, as both companies begin their transitions to support a zero-carbon economy. The data centre provider has also committed to setting ambitious, science-based emission reduction targets which will be finalised in 2021.
Colt DCS Director of Energy and Sustainability, Scott Balloch said “Our accelerated transition to renewable energy is just the first step in our journey to becoming more sustainable as a business and industry. We believe the responsibility lies with us as an industry to lead the way, generate our own high standards for sustainability, and present these to governments.”
Colt DCS and Colt Technology Services are developing an ambitious sustainability strategy underpinned by both companies’ visions on becoming the most customer-focused across the industry. Colt wants to enable its customers to reach their own sustainability goals by being a strategic partner of choice who is passionate and proactive in driving change across the industry.Click below to share this article
