What is a Green Power Pass?

The first offering of its kind in the data center industry, Green Power Pass ("GPP") is a data center renewable energy solution that gives customers the ability to include the power they consume at any Iron Mountain data center as green power in their CDP, RE100, GRI, or other sustainability reporting.

Iron Mountain data centers have been powered by 100% renewable electricity since 2017.As a result, Green Power Pass brings the data center buyer and the corporate sustainability team together for the first time as they can now work together to achieve a cost effective green power solution.

Data centers are a large source of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) or carbon emission power consumption for many mid to large-sized organizations. Asa result, being able to count colocation power as "green"means not having to go through time-consuming, costly efforts like purchasing renewable energy credits to offset the impacts of data center operations.

With GPP, customers can claim their Iron Mountain colocation power consumption as green immediately upon contract execution. Additionally, once a year prior to reporting time, Iron Mountain provides a fully audited letter of attestation for all GPP customers to use in their reporting and assurance process. CDP made easy.

GPP attestation covers the entire amount of power consumed throughout the previous calendar year for both IT loads and associated PUE, assuming the organization was an Iron Mountain data center customer during that period.

Iron Mountain’s Green Power Pass is an exciting breakthrough for the data center industry and a wonderful demonstration of the power of collaboration between industry and NGO’s. By being the first product that uses the Future of Internet Power Requirements for Supplier-Procured Renewable Energy, Iron Mountain is showing the way for data center customers to easily access green electricity. Now all colocation and cloud customers of any size can be part of the movement to increase demand and help realize the goal of an internet powered by 100% renewable energy.
