Abstract:
Despite their sophistication about data in other contexts, leading IT and computing giants in the U.S. use crude and outdated information to calculate the carbon footprint of their data centers, missing the real picture of their emissions by about 25%. Data centers comprise the fastest growing energy buying sector, and the companies that run them have the most advanced data analytics tools at their disposal, as well as high-minded public commitments to sustainability. They should lead rather than lag, by using more accurate data to report on their emissions – and to inform the actions they take to reduce them.
