Beyond Greenwashing: The Connection Between Sustainability and Compliance

Oct. 21, 2022
How do you know which sustainability standard or certification is right for your organization? DCF’s Rich Miller will explore sustainability evaluation and reporting metrics with Iron Mountain’s Jim Henry and Chris Pennington during a November 2 webinar.

Sustainability has quickly become a top priority for the data center industry. As private and co-located data centers continue to grow, operators are faced with the challenge of establishing and measuring sustainability programs, and then communicating the results of their efforts to various stakeholders. Operators can choose from any number of standards and certifications to accomplish this incredibly complex task, including a number of International Organization Standardization (ISO) standards like ISO 50001, ISO 9001, ISO 30134, ISO 14064 or ISO 14001.

The standard or certification you choose will guide future decisions around continuous improvement and it will demonstrate your commitment to running a sustainable business. So, how do you know what’s the right path for your organization?
