Corporate Social Responsibility
Custodian is passionate about building a sustainable future, protecting the environment as well as enriching our wider community through the support of clients, those living locally and charitable foundations. Our efforts have been recognised as winners of the Green Data Centre accolade at the Datacentre Leaders Awards.
As a data centre built with environmental concerns at its core, Custodian has designed its infrastructure and processes to minimise impact on our natural resources, optimising our efficiencies and achieving unprecedented levels of energy conservation within our industry, using five times less energy per kW of IT load than the average data centre. What's more, our PUE regularly drops below 1.2, meaning that for every 1kW used to power equipment hosted in the data centre, we use 0.2kW of power to operate all related areas of infrastructure, such as cooling, lighting, etc. These efficiencies not only allow us to benefit the world around us but to pass on savings to our clients.
Within our building and surrounding location we utilise the following methods of reaching our environmental potential:
