Leaseweb has announced it has achieved Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact (CNDCP) certification.
Leasweb has said that the certification confirms its commitment to sustainability standards and its role in supporting the European Green Deal.
“Leaseweb is committed to protecting this world for present and future generations,” said Pieter Dijkhuis, Chief Financial Officer of Leaseweb. “That means taking meaningful action in all areas of our business – and doing it now and continuously. From the cooling systems in our data centres, the recycling of IT equipment, to reducing our energy consumption, we continue to seek out and execute new ways to bring green computing closer to reality. We also focus on offering cloud platforms, which allow our customers to combine workloads and optimise how our equipment is being used in a more energy efficient manner.”
Leaseweb has set its own goal of reaching 90% renewable energy and recycled materials by 2025. Its Montreal data centres use 100% hydroelectric energy, while its Netherlands sites utilise adiabatic cooling to reduce heat and regulate temperature naturally by removing heat through water evaporation.
The Green Deal certificate will be issued individually for the company’s operations in both Germany and the Netherlands.
“This achievement signifies a new milestone for Leaseweb and for our industry. By achieving the CNDCP certification, we are demonstrating that we can drive technological innovation while prioritising sustainability. As a participant in the CNDCP, we are proud to contribute to the European Green Deal’s ambitious goal of making Europe climate neutral by 2050,” concluded Dijkhuis.
