The Data Center Operator’s Guide to Sustainability Metrics

Presented by

Robert Bunger, Schneider Electric , Greg Jones, Schneider Electric

About this talk

Many companies are now reporting on sustainability as a supplement to financial reporting. They are communicating their commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) programs. The data center industry has unique characteristics, such as high energy intensity, rapid growth, large power consumption and water usage that require specialized metrics. Standardizing these metrics will help with adoption, improve benchmarking, and progress sustainability within the industry. We have created a comprehensive framework for environmental sustainability metrics to share with the industry. It outlines five areas of impact, which include 23 key metrics for data center operators who are in the Beginning, Advanced and Leading stages of their sustainability journey. We also identify the 17 most relevant sustainability frameworks and standards to guide data center operators in target setting, reporting, and certifying. By joining this webinar, you’ll hear data center sustainability experts from Schneider Electric discuss: • Incorporating metrics for your business that go beyond energy usage • Adopting a standard framework of environmental sustainability metrics • Frameworks and standards to help you begin your reporting process
