Climate Impact Focus
Rarely does a day pass where we do not hear the words ‘Climate Change’, in fact it’s so common that perhaps we have all become a little desensitised to it. Or perhaps, we don’t seem to be taking it as seriously as we should be! The sad fact is that our planet is warming up, and we all need to act now to avoid catastrophic, irreversible climate change.
As a country we are trying to reduce the impact that we are having on the climate, but unfortunately it is unlikely that we will now be able to reverse the damage already caused. Our Infographic on climate change looks at some of the Government targets that have been set.
However, it is not just the Government who has a responsibility to set our key objectives. Whether you are an employer or an employee, we all have a duty to explore environmental opportunities that enhance the environment and reduce your impact on climate change. Companies should understand the importance of monitoring their energy performance and identifying opportunities for improvement and reduce the environmental impact from energy consumption. Our blog on climate change looks at how you could make a positive difference.
As a result of climate change, population increases and changes in lifestyle, water is becoming a more valuable resource and will continue to be so in the future. Current water consumption levels are leading to an increased scrutiny over how data centres effectively utilise water and the amount of wastewater produced.
Water consumption is the second biggest natural resource concern, behind power, facing Data Centres. So how can you reduce water usage in your data centre? Our blog suggests ways in which you can do so.
At Workspace Technology we look to ensure that our data centre designs have minimal impact on the climate by incorporating or EcoDesign principles and energy efficient equipment.
