2013 EMEA Forum – Environmental Life Cycle Criteria and the Data Centre Maturity Model

16 October, 2013 | Presentation

Lex Coors, Interxion

This session offers an in-depth review of The Green Grid’s current work on Environmental Life Cycle Criteria and the Data Center Maturity Model (DCMM). This project will create a list of environmental criteria, compliant with the format of DCMM, which can be used as the basis for the creation of an Environmental Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) section in the next revision of the DCMM. This project will consider all life cycles’ stages and environmental impacts, and only the most significant will be kept. This work will draw upon existing documents from The Green Grid and other recognized organizations to define metrics, standards, best practices, and methodologies.
