CyrusOne has been running its European facilities on renewable energy since 2021.
CyrusOne’s VP of Environmental Health, Safety, and Sustainability, Kyle Myers said, our customers’ commitments to reduce their carbon footprints have inspired us to quicken our efforts. It is becoming more and more evident that our previous target of climate neutrality 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.
Back in 2020, CyrusOne pledged to become carbon-neutral by 2040 (now forwarded the date by 10 years to 2030).
Other companies like AirTrunk and DigitalBridge have pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030 while AWS and NTT promised to reach the milestone by 2040.
