What we do to be a green data centre
At Volta, we are continually looking for new ways to further improve our sustainability. Since 2017, all our power has been sourced from 100% carbon neutral, renewable energy providers from UK wind farms.
All equipment and infrastructure installed and sourced is of the highest energy efficiency rating that can be deployed. Our latest initiative is the installation of Electric Vehicle charging stations to encourage and enable our staff, customers, and suppliers to reduce the impact of their travel on the environment.
Introduction to green data centres
Data centres are power hungry facilities, consuming 3% of all electricity generated on the planet. Those data centres that procure their power from non-renewable sources contribute heavily to worldwide carbon emissions.
Volta is different. We are a green data centre and provide assurances that few of our competitors can compete with.
All our power is sourced from 100% carbon neutral, renewable energy providers and we take extensive measures to prevent pollution to those affected by our activities by reducing emissions and noise and air pollution at source.
We assess and monitor our performance against stringent environmental objectives and provide our people with environmental training to promote responsible environmental practices within the company.
Volta also maintains close partnerships with recognised external agencies such as the Environmental Agency and the EU Data Centre Code of Conduct. These partnerships help boost our credentials as a truly eco-friendly data centre.
