CyrusOne Accelerates Carbon Neutral Pledge to 2030

December 8, 2022

CyrusOne, a leading global data center developer and operator specializing in state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions, today announced to accelerate its pledge to become climate neutral by 2030, moving up its previous 2040 commitment by a decade.

To achieve this milestone, CyrusOne will continue to improve the energy efficiency of its new and existing data centers, procure renewable electricity at an accelerated rate to power the facilities, and investigate zero-carbon alternatives to traditional diesel backup generators. These efforts build upon the progress CyrusOne has already made, including achieving 100% renewable electricity across its full European portfolio starting in 2021.

“Our customers’ commitments to reduce their carbon footprints has inspired us to quicken our efforts,” said Kyle Myers, Vice President of Environmental Health, Safety, and Sustainability at CyrusOne. “It is becoming more and more evident that our previous target of climate neutral by 2040 was ambitious for its time, but is no longer ambitious enough. We not only plan to reach carbon neutrality by the end of this decade, but to do so while decreasing our water consumption in vulnerable regions.”

CyrusOne strives for excellence in sustainability and continuous improvement, forging our goal to drive innovation in this space for the good of our customers and our planet. For more information on CyrusOne’s sustainability efforts, see their 2022 Sustainability Report.
