CyrusOne Receives Top Project of the Year Award from Environment+Energy Leader
CyrusOne, a leading global data center developer and operator specializing in delivering state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has received a Top Project of the Year Award in the Environment+Energy Leader Awards program. The award demonstrates CyrusOne’s exemplary energy and environmental management work in the data center industry.
The winning project pioneered a comprehensive approach for reducing the total water impact of the flagship CyrusOne data center in Carrollton, TX, a high water-stress region. Using new methods to estimate and reduce water embodied in electricity, CyrusOne reduced onsite water use, switched to “waterless” electricity, and collaborated to restore water to local waterways. This three-part approach reduced total water impact by 75% in an industry known for intensive water use.
The Environment+Energy Leader Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with environmental and energy benefits and in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased profitability.
“I’d like to thank Environment+Energy Leader for recognizing CyrusOne for our three-part approach to water reduction,” said Kyle Myers, VP, Environmental Health, Safety & Sustainability at CyrusOne. “For the past few years, we’ve been working to raise the profile of water issues in the data center industry, and we hope this project will set an example of responsible water management as water scarcity increases in many regions. It’s great to get expert confirmation that our approach to help customers scale while reducing environmental impact is real and impactful.”
“With a very experienced and critical judging panel and a strict set of judging criteria, entrants faced an extremely high bar to qualify for an award in 2022,” says Sarah Roberts, Environment+Energy Leader publisher.
