Our collaboration with CleanHub
We are protecting our oceans from plastic waste
We have one planet for all time. A planet growing more connected day by day. We have the responsibility to take care of it, for us and for future generations. Our higher goal is to protect our planet by taking action with our commitment towards green data centers. We want to take care of people and the planet. We are on a journey. This commitment towards cleaner oceans is one concrete step within our journey.
We aim to show loyalty to our planet. Our ESG strategy is mainly based on a path to reach Net Zero within the next years to tackle the main challenges that today’s world is facing around energy, emissions, water, and waste. Our holistic sustainability concept encompasses the sustainable life cycle of our data centers. We will prioritize waste reduction and are committed to using non scarce materials, such as rare earth metals, responsibly. To achieve this, we strive to maximize the utilization of recycled and recyclable materials, and we will employ material passports to ensure traceability and accountability throughout our projects. Our goal is to minimize diversion rates and promote circularity in all our endeavors. Besides this, we also aim to address the social aspect, more specifically the “S” inside the ESG. We take responsibility for following aspects such as occupational health and safety, diversity and social commitment worldwide. We try to maximize positive effects for the society and environment. This has a direct impact on ensuring basic labour, social and environmental standards.
How waste management prevents plastic pollution
Two billion people in coastal regions don’t have access to proper waste management. Trash is either openly burned, dumped, or piled onto poorly managed landfills, destined to impact our climate. Waste management systems prevent trash from ever leaking into nature or being burnt under the open sky.
It is all about awareness. We all need to act urgently. … and we start with AQ-OSL1: our first data center is going to be live at the beginning of 2024. Our ESG strategy is mainly based on a path to reach Net Zero within the next years to tackle the main challenges that today’s world is facing around energy, emissions, water and waste.
On waste prevention
In our data centers, we are committed to minimizing the amount of plastic used to the bare minimum and to recycling the plastic that cannot be avoided in our data centers.
