Green Data Centers: APAC/US/EU Sustainability Measures 2023

From powering the Internet to promoting the digital economy, data centers (DCs) represent a key infrastructure for digital transformation. Governments and private companies rely on these centers for information processing and storage, but increased energy consumption derived from large volumes of data has raised concerns among governments worldwide.

In Asia-Pacific, Singapore recently announced sustainability standards for DCs operating in tropical climates. India, meanwhile, introduced a regulatory framework to promote international DCs. Similarly, since launching the Climate Neutral Data Center Pact, the European Union (EU) has introduced various sustainability measures that would increase scrutiny over data centers, such as the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, which aims to increase Member States’ energy consumption reduction targets.

The Green Data Centers report, which builds on our previous papers on Global Data Centers Policy and Sustainability Report, as well as on Singapore’s journey towards Green data centers, outlines some of the key sustainability policies in Asia-Pacific, the United States, and the European Union that have a direct impact on companies operating or seeking to develop data centers.
