Sustainability impact when using cloud

The sustainability wins of the cloud are many. Studies show for instance, that moving to public cloud can help organizations reduce the carbon footprint of their IT operations by almost 90 percent. 

Also, data centers of cloud providers are adopters of renewable energy, primarily solar and wind power. Microsoft has been carbon neutral since 2012 and their data centers run on 60 percent renewable electricity. By 2025, AWS aims to power its operations with 100 percent renewable energy. Google Cloud has been carbon neutral since 2007 and aims at being carbon free by 2030.

Our take on sustainability in the cloud

As member of the Exponential Roadmap Initiative and the UN-backed global campaign Race to Zero, we are integrating climate action into our business strategy and helping clients to reduce GHG emissions in line with the 1.5°C climate ambition.

In terms of cloud, this means that we will help you make sustainable choices to minimize the carbon footprint of your cloud solutions and IT infrastructure. We do this by providing market-leading sustainability expertise and advanced sustainability practices by the top cloud providers AWS, Microsoft, and Google. 

We will be leveraging these three cloud platforms to run carbon neutral operations, and fully on renewable energy by 2025 in the regions where we utilize data centers for our clients’ solutions.
