Volta Data Centres signs UK Gov’t green agreement

Colo secures ISO 27001 certification as it secures a Climate Change Agreement to support energy efficiencies.

By Joao Lima

Volta Data Centres has secured a Climate Change Agreement (CCA) with the UK Government after meeting energy efficiency requirements.

The CCA was granted based on Volta’s electricity consumption for the last two years. The company said it will now meet energy efficiency targets to receive its Climate Change Levy.

Managing carbon impact through a CCA provides collocation data centres with an aligned process that takes into account the fast growing industry, according to Volta.

The colo also received an ISO 27001:2013 security standard accreditation to support energy efficiencies.

The company’s Great Sutton Street carrier-neutral data centre in Central London passed an Information Security Management System audit, meeting ISO 27001’s necessary requirements for providing secure data centre services

The scope of the Management System covers the design and provision of the collocation and managed data centre services covering security policies, legal compliance requirements and in-house processes and business continuity systems, according to the provider.

Jon Arnold, MD at Volta Data Centres, said: "Our state-of-the-art row-based cooling system uses 42% less fan power than the standard CRAC units you see in most facilities. It means we can reduce our power-consumption to help meet our environmental responsibilities that we now have laid out in our CCA."
