Sustainability is top of mind for everyone in the data center industry as a client need, regulatory risk, investor concern, and/or business opportunity. But how does a data center operator know they are looking at the right aspects of sustainability, if they are doing enough, and if they have the right programs in place?

Sustainability is more than just a carbon neutral or net-zero claim, and the industry needs to focus on all aspects of design and operations that materially impact a data centers environmental footprint across energy, water, waste, and emissions. In this session, we will review the latest regulations driving sustainability, the aspects of sustainability an operator needs to consider, and emerging best practices.


  • The latest on sustainability regulations
  • Which aspects of sustainability should be considered when creating a strategic plan for your digital infrastructure
