LuxConnect endorses the EU Code of Conduct on data centers
The European Code of Conduct on Data Center Energy Efficiency is a voluntary initiative managed by the European Commission’s in-house science service called JRC or Joint Research Centre.
The Code of Conduct was created in response to increasing energy consumption in data centers.
The goal is to inform and stimulate data center operators to reduce energy consumption in a cost-effective manner without impacting the critical function of data centers.
Data centers measure their energy efficiency in Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). The average PUE value of LuxConnect’s Tier IV certified data centers is 1.3.
In May 2017, LuxConnect was granted the title of Corporate Participant for its data center DC1.3 located in Bettembourg.
Beginning of August, LuxConnect completed with success the Code of Conduct for the data center DC2 located in Bissen.
Since the start of the program in 2008, 315 data centers have been approved as Participant.
All Participants have the obligation to continuously monitor energy consumption and adopt energy management in order to look for continuous improvement in energy efficiency.
In addition LuxConnect promotes the Code of Conduct to their customers and has been recognised also as Endorser.
Roger Lampach, LuxConnect’s CEO, said: “It’s quite natural for LuxConnect to support this program as we put great emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility, especially for operations, meaning energy efficiency measures, sourcing from renewable resources, waste management, and so on. The aim is to have the four data centers granted Corporate Participant till the end of this year.”
In parallel LuxConnect’s engineers are working on the carbon footprint impact of their sites on the environment.
Green and sustainable are not just words, but the very concept on which LuxConnect’s data centers are built and operated.
