In the Media: Data That Doesn’t Cost the Earth

Chris Pennington, Director of Energy and Sustainability, speaks to Computer Weekly about the key drivers in achieving net zero emissions - growing regulation, increasing customer demand for more sustainable solutions, and the fact that it’s good for business and the planet.

It's estimated that data centers across the world consume about 3% of global electricity and account for around 2% of total greenhouse gas emissions. These numbers are only rising, leaving no room for complacency.

Pennington states, "Tech companies have a responsibility to educate their customers on the environmental impact of digitalisation and their data storage, so together, they can consume less, even if there’s a need to store more."
