Telehouse gets “Carbon Trust Standard” accreditation

Data centre provider Telehouse has received “Carbon Trust Standard” accreditation for its data centres in France – Telehouse Paris Voltaire, Telehouse Paris Je√Ľneurs and Telehouse Magny-Les-Hameaux.

The company also has accreditation for its 4 London data centres.

Data centres account for 1.5 per cent of the world’s energy consumption according to Pike Research, expected to double to 3 per cent by 2020.

The Carbon Trust Standard is a program to help data centres achieve higher levels of energy efficiency.

The CTS is a rigorous, independent assessment which certifies that an organisation has measured, managed and reduced their carbon emissions across its own operations, and are committed to reducing it year-on-year.

2 of Telehouse’s London sites received their CTS certification after improving carbon efficiency by 12 per cent relative to turnover.
