DigiPlex has announced that it is the latest signatory to the European Code of Conduct for Energy Efficiency in Data Centres. This will reportedly help the company benchmark its performance regarding sustainability and see it participate in carbon reduction initiatives to ensure it keeps a low carbon footprint.

According to the company, it already operates below the 1.8 PUE but continually seeks to reduce its PUE further. It outlined the best practices set out in the European Code of Conduct, "provide ideal foundations for achieving certification to ISO 50001." The company plans to attain this certification by 2023.

Speaking about the code, Haakon Holm-Knapstad, Chief HR & Compliance Officer at DigiPlex, said: "Although voluntary, the EU Code of Conduct provides a stringent framework to help DigiPlex improve its already industry-leading energy efficiency. With over 200 data points reported per site, it helps us prepare the granular data to support precise and effective improvement plans. This same data will be crucial as we approach ISO 50001 certification."

Meanwhile, Wiljar Nesse, DigiPlex CEO, stressed the importance of everyone playing their part in decarbonizing Europe's economy. "As a leader, it is incumbent on DigiPlex not to rest on its laurels, but to constantly challenge itself to be better and to inspire others to be better. The EU Code of Conduct is a significant element in our mission to always put sustainability at the core," he said.
