Sustainability in the Data Center Takes Center Stage

Aug 16, 2021

Customers and stakeholders are demanding accountability on climate impact, creating a compelling business incentive to embrace sustainability.  When it comes to climate change, it is time for the data center sector to lead. The massive energy footprint of cloud computing enables the data center industry to drive a global shift to renewably-powered business. 

Almost daily, the urgent need for climate change is written large in headlines - be it, the devastating wildfires on the West Coast or powerful hurricanes along the Gulf Coast. These disasters have been a tipping point in public awareness, driving home the fact that a changed climate is not a future threat, but a current reality. The data center industry is in a unique position to accelerate the adoption of sustainable practices and reduce the damage to our changing climate.

Accelerating Green Data Centers

Innovation in energy efficiency and renewable adoption has been driven by the industry's largest enterprise customers, such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft. Sustainability is now a front-of-mind concern for all enterprises, small and large, which is raising the bar for the entire industry.

As a leader in IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) and data center decommissioning it is vital that we meet or exceed all industry standards and data destruction regulations. We do this by maintaining R2: 2013 Responsible Recycling, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System and ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Management System certifications.

How ITAD Reduces Costs

How ITAD Reduces Costs

Large technology companies operate data centers at a scale that’s difficult to imagine, even for those in the industry. New IT assets are what keep these organizations running. On top of the constant need for the latest, cutting-edge hardware, IT leaders in these organizations are keenly aware of the sensitive personal data that will be stored on those assets.

Why ITAD. The legal case

Why ITAD. The legal case

No two companies are exactly alike, so no two companies will have the same motivations to work with an ITAD provider. However, most companies fall into three primary categories: Legal, Ethical/Social, and Economics.
Today we’ll cover the legal reasons for ITAD; the laws that govern privacy and the penalties that follow if you don’t follow them. Most of them will cover data privacy, but there are also environmental laws you should consider.
