Gaining green certification is one of the ways to show its customers’ their commitment to operate eco-friendly data centers.
Chief Executive Officer at LDeX Robin Garbutt said, “LDeX’s 3 year road map was to operate our data centers on 100 percent renewable energy. To do this within LDeX1’s first year of operation is something we are very proud of. In an age where energy costs are rising and mounting pressure is put on businesses to take their impact on the environment seriously, we feel we have hit a sensible balance in committing to renewable energy in 2013.”
In addition to this LDeX data centers have gained ISO-5001 standards for energy efficiency and management. An ISO-5001 standard recognizes organizations with minimum energy wastage. LDeX claims to be one of the few organizations in UK to achieve his certification and standards.
