Sustainability & ESG Forum

Sustainability & ESG forum by Platform Markets Group – on the 5th of September

Platform Global, Antibes, is the leading data centre infrastructure investment forum serving the global data centre and ICT industries.
We are proud to contribute to the ESG and Sustainability Forum being held on Day 2 of the program, on the 5th of September.

The event will seek to provide the route to Net Zero emissions in data centres, the enterprise quest for sustainability, policy and ESG. The event shall discuss how reasonable public policy can influence sustainability, an integrated approach to sustainability of end-to-end digital infrastructure and action now to mitigate carbon emissions in digital infrastructure.

“Our vision is to lead in decarbonising the colocation and data centre industry,” commented Henry Daunert, CEO, AQ Compute. “Our mission is to provide modular, carbon-neutral data centre capacities across Europe, powered by renewable energy sources, following green building standards, recovering and recycling the energy and compensating for each MW used with another MW of renewable energy – enabling our clients to reduce their carbon footprints.”

Based on feedback from 2022, delegates rated the Platform event and programme as exceptional with leading speakers, curated content as well as the enormous benefit of high-end networking. Delegates preferred this event too because of its ease of access among those attending enabling very specific targeting and hosted in the secluded and incomparable French Riviera resort of Antibes/Juan-les-Pins on the edge of the Mediterranean yet located only 23km from the facilities of Nice International Airport.
Stay tuned for more details.
