CyrusOne Announces Sustainability Milestones at Global Headquarters
CyrusOne Inc. (NASDAQ: CONE), a premier global data center real estate investment trust (REIT), today announced it has achieved 100% renewable power at the company’s Dallas, TX headquarters and added the site to CyrusOne’s existing net water positive building portfolio. The headquarter offices will be CyrusOne’s first location that is both 100% renewable energy and net water positive. The move to renewable energy and water stewardship at its company headquarters is part of a broader effort by CyrusOne to deliver highly efficient, resilient, and sustainable infrastructures to its customers.
“Our headquarters sustainability achievement is a glimpse of CyrusOne’s sustainable future,” said David Ferdman, Interim President and CEO of CyrusOne. “As we expand our efforts around climate, water, biodiversity and circular economy across our data center portfolio, we wanted to make sure our headquarters is walking the talk, too.”
“This announcement for our global headquarters aligns with our goals we set as a company back in 2019 to add more renewable infrastructure and net-water positive facilities to our network,” said Kyle Myers, Senior Director of Environmental Health, Safety and Sustainability at CyrusOne. “In 2021, we not only switched our offices to renewable electricity but also restored 20% more water than we used to the watershed.”
This announcement demonstrates CyrusOne’s commitment to minimize impacts to the local environment and is part of the company’s larger sustainability mission. CyrusOne recently released its 2021 Sustainability Report, which highlights the company’s commitments to the environment, the community, and stakeholders, and provides insight into the company’s efforts to conserve water and energy through creative data center design. CyrusOne also co-founded the Climate Neutral Data Center Pact in 2021, which includes 25 companies and 17 associations from across the industry and has a goal of making European data centers climate-neutral by 2030.
