Digital Realty Ranks Sixth on 
EPA’s Top 30 Tech & Telecom List of Green Power Users

Aaron Binkley, Director, Sustainability
July 20, 2017

As more organizations became more concerned about data centers’ power usage and carbon footprint, the green data center market is expected to reach or exceed $55 billion by 2021, growing an overall CAGR of 14 percent.

To do our part and accommodate evolving customer preferences and requirements sustainability is a critical part of our approach. As a leader in the data center industry, we recognize our responsibility to lead the way on critical issues that impact the entire world. Using green power helps build demand for the development of new renewable energy capacity nationwide and helps us reduce our carbon footprint. The more we can do to raise awareness of green power initiatives, the better.

Digital Realty is committed to its sustainability initiatives, including the use of green power. That is why we are proud to announce that Digital Realty was recently ranked sixth on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Top 30 Tech & Telecom list of the largest consumers of green power, as well as twelfth on the EPA’s National Top 100 list of green power users.

Though we are pleased to add this most recent accolade to some of the notable sustainability goals we have already reached, this by no means represents a victory or an end. Digital Realty recently secured a utility-scale renewable energy wind farm to serve 100% of its U.S. colocation and interconnection electricity footprint and recently became one of the first REITs to issue a green bond for funding projects with a beneficial impact on the environment.

We aim to be a market leader in utilizing green power and we plan to continue moving forward on this path in hopes of contributing to a more sustainable industry as a whole. We know that these days, data center customers expect sustainability to be a high priority, and, more importantly, the future of our world depends on it.
