Data Centres account for 3-4% of global greenhouse gas emissions and currently the amount of energy used by data centres doubles every four years.
A recent study found that only 28% of data centres have visibility on their energy utilisation. 85% however, already realise that sustainability adoption will significantly impact their operations and business decision making in the coming years.
Reducing their carbon footprint poses a unique and significant challenge to data centre operators as the demand for computing power increases.
