2014 Forum – Environmental Life Cycle Criteria in the Data Center Maturity Model

07 October, 2014 | Presentation

Christophe Garnier, Schneider Electric

This session offers an in-depth review of The Green Grid’s current work on Environmental Life Cycle Criteria and the Data Centre Maturity Model (DCMM). This project is working to create a list of environmental criteria, compliant with DCMM formats, establishing a basis for the creation of an Environmental Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) section in the next revision of the DCMM. The project will survey all life cycle stages and environmental impacts in an effort to reduce them to the most significant features. Drawing upon existing documents from The Green Grid and other recognized organizations, the project will seek to specify metrics, standards, best practices, and methodologies.
