✅ Embodied carbon – Between volatile international energy markets and the climate crisis, energy is a key consideration for data center sustainability. Yet, energy usage is not the only way that data centers can tackle their carbon footprint. Quite possibly it is not even the most important one. We take a close look at everything you need to know about embodied carbon & Scope 3 emissions, paying special attention to the major impact the EU Taxonomy for sustainable activities will have on the entire data center value chain.
✅ Heat recovery – We'll present an overview of successful projects all over the Nordics and dive deeper into this topic with a case study from EcoDataCenter.
✅ Life cycle assessment – By accounting for the entirety of a data center’s life cycle, it's possible to keep track of where the main sustainability-related impacts stem from in the data center value chain. This will impact future data center design, build, and operations in a way that everyone in the industry needs to understand.
