TCO announces sustainable datacentre collab

TCO Development has announced a new international collaboration with the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance, SDIA, with the goal of supporting progress towards more sustainable datacentre solutions and helping organisations to select and purchase IT products responsibly.

“Our vision is that servers, data storage products and network equipment, as well as all other IT products, should have an environmentally and socially responsible life cycle. We are well aware that we can’t achieve this on our own. By working together with the members of SDIA, we want to maximise our efforts of reducing the negative environmental impact IT products have and minimise e-waste. Together with purchasers who demand more sustainable datacentre products, we can push the IT industry to move in the right direction,” Andreas Nobell, development manager at TCO Development said.

“With TCO Development, the SDIA is expanding its membership base more towards certification, a critical element of defining objective standards on what is sustainable. This is particularly important when it comes to our work on the Digital Carbon Footprint. I am very excited to welcome a renowned institution such as TCO Development in our Alliance”, Daan Terpstra, CEO at SDIA added.
