Digital Infrastructure Sustainability: Navigating regulations and standards

Presented by

Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Research; Jay Dietrich, Research Director of Sustainability

About this talk

Data centers are subject to an expanding set of largely voluntary sustainability standards and requirements covering measurement and reporting, water and energy use, renewable energy procurement, equipment and system efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions management, adherence to a circular economy approach, and siting and design requirements. Investors and customers will increasingly use these standards to make investment and purchasing decisions. Legislators and regulators will use them as the basis of mandates governing the sustainability of operations and periodic sustainability reporting. Any operator hoping to thrive in the data center services marketplace in the next decade will need to meet the requirements of many of these standards. Join this important discussion to hear what you will need to know.
