Taking action on behalf of the environment and our customers
Appropriate stewardship of the environment is an emerging and serious concern across broad swathes of society, business and government. Responsible businesses are taking proactive measures to assess their contribution to this growing area of global concern, and to institute corrective and mitigating programs to combat the underlying root causes of the problem. NTT America is one such company taking a leadership role in establishing good business practices for its data centers and implementing a company-wide action plan to reduce harmful contributions to the environment.
Greener Data Centers
With heightened focus on the environment, enterprises are under increased scrutiny, especially their high technology and data center based operations. In response to this challenge, NTT America has instituted The Green Initiative — a company-wide strategic program that aims to lower emissions from its commercial data centers, establish good environmental practice and discipline throughout its corporate operations, and encourage customer participation and partnership.
Establishing an Action Plan
NTT America's long-term strategy and plan are the result of several assessments by, and consultations with, leading experts in the industry. The Green Grid is one such industry group providing guidance and direction to NTT America. The Green Grid is an influential industry consortium representing IT manufacturers and data center providers. It addresses the issue of facility and hardware efficiency as well as standardization, ratings and regulation.
NTT America also commissioned and completed an extensive audit of its data centers; looking at all aspects of power consumption, cooling requirements, heat dispersion and overall impact to conservation and the environment. Going forward, operational improvements are being driven based on key business and performance metrics.
NTT America's Green Initiative is being executed via a wide-ranging action plan centered on three major areas of concentration: the data centers themselves, company-wide across NTT America and customer participation.
