Sustainability Initiatives

TierPoint has taken a number of concrete steps toward minimizing our environmental impact. Among other things:

  • We track power usage efficiency, or PUE, and carbon footprint for our data centers on a monthly basis and have achieved a 13% improvement in PUE over the last several years.
  • To achieve gains in energy efficiency, we’ve focused on steps such as:
    • Modifying operational controls to increase efficiency in our cooling systems;
    • Replacing and retrofitting inefficient cooling and electrical systems;
    • Using highly efficient electrical and mechanical equipment on all new builds and expansions.
  • We also participate in demand response programs to support the utility grid during peak periods. Generators enrolled in demand response programs are retrofitted and upgraded to meet appropriate emissions standards.
  • We’ve adjusted maintenance and testing intervals of generators to reduce overall annual generator runtime.
  • When evaluating supply contracts in deregulated markets, we consider the availability of renewable energy sources as a key criterion in our supplier evaluation process.

Future Commitments

TierPoint has made commitments to enact new sustainability projects in the coming months, including:

  • We are completing an annual GRESB Infrastructure Assessment. This global ESG benchmark for financial markets follows a rigorous methodology and provides a consistent framework to measure the performance of companies like ours.
  • We plan to develop an emissions reduction target in line with Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) criteria. SBTi drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling organizations to set and publicly monitor progress against such targets.
