Sustainability by EcoDataCenter

Digitalisation and data centers are essential to a wide range of modern services such as healthcare and financial transactions.

However, data centers consume large amounts of energy and are projected by some to account for nearly 10% of global energy consumption by 2030. EcoDataCenter addresses this challenge by building data centers in locations where the electricity mix is fossil-free, banning energy-intensive cryptocurrency mining, building in wood, and recycling waste heat.

We are committed to transparency and inspiring others to adopt similar sustainable practices.

Climate Report

In 2022, we developed a comprehensive Climate Report. This report, delivered to our customers on a monthly basis, provides a detailed analysis of all carbon emissions associated with our data center operationss, in accordance with Green House Gas Protocol Scope 1,2,3.

It includes a comparison between our data center and a traditional Swedish data center, as well an traditional German data center which demonstrates an even greater difference.

Unique solution for heat recovery

We believe that it is our responsibility to take action against climate change. That's why we have implemented innovative solutions that not only reduce our own carbon footprint but also actively work to reduce emissions in our surrounding community.

Unlike traditional data centers that release heat into the environment and contribute to the formation of "heat islands", we have found a way to harness the excess heat from our server halls and transport it to the nearby thermal power plant. This has resulted in an annual savings of 700-800 hours in fossil fuel operations, which is more than the total CO2 emissions our facility generates in a year!

Additionally, by increasing the thermal power plant's pellet production with our help, we are reducing CO2 emissions in and around Falun. This not only helps to mitigate the impact of climate change, but it also has a positive impact on the local community by supporting the development of sustainable energy solutions.

Wooden framework

The journey of EcoDataCenter began in 2018, with the construction of our first data center in Falun. One of the unique aspects of this data center is that the framework was built using renewable Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). CLT is a type of engineered wood that is a sustainable building material that has a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to traditional building materials such as concrete and steel. In fact, the embedded carbon emission from building in concrete and steel is eight times higher than building in wood.

At EcoDataCenter, we are passionate about building data centers in wood. We discovered that the construction time is faster than the traditional way, and the actual construction is easier due to the large pieces that are prefabricated and delivered in complete pieces. This results in a more efficient and cost-effective construction process.

Our commitment to using sustainable building materials and implementing sustainable practices in all aspects of our operations is what sets EcoDataCenter apart from others. We are proud to be leading the way in sustainable data center construction and look forward to continuing to innovate and push the boundaries in the industry.

The country Sweden

We are a Swedish owned company. We pay our taxes in Sweden and we operate in Sweden.  We therefore have unique capabilities. Sweden is known for its abundance of low-cost, renewable energy sources such as hydropower and wind power. This not only helps keep energy costs low but also reduces the carbon footprint of the data center. Additionally, Sweden has a well-developed energy grid that is able to support the large power requirements of data centers.

Another advantage of being located in Sweden is the country's political stability and access to a highly skilled work force. This provides a level of security and predictability that is important for data centers.

All of these factors combined make EcoDataCenter one of the most cost-competitive and sustainable data centers around. Our commitment to utilizing renewable energy sources and implementing sustainable practices in all aspects of our operations allows us to offer a sustainable and cost-effective solution for businesses looking to store and manage their data. Additionally, by being located in Sweden, we are able to provide a level of security and predictability that is important for data centers.

Local commitment

We believe that building a sustainable future starts with investing in our community and supporting local businesses. That's why we have made a commitment to sourcing locally as much as possible in our data center operations. By using local labor and working with local companies, we are not only reducing our carbon footprint through shorter transportation distances, but we are also investing in the growth and development of our local economy. This creates jobs, supports small businesses and helps to build stronger communities.

Additionally, we strive to use locally-sourced materials in the construction and maintenance of our data centers. This not only reduces our environmental impact but also supports the local economy by keeping money within the community. We understand that building a sustainable future is a collective effort, and we are proud to be a part of that effort by supporting our community and local businesses. We invite you to join us in building a better future with our commitment to sourcing locally. Together, we can create a sustainable and thriving economy for future generations to come.

Cryptocurrencies

At EcoDataCenter, we are committed to sustainability and ethical business practices. For this reason, we have made the decision not to engage in any activities related to cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency mining, in particular, is known to consume a large amount of energy and has a significant carbon footprint. It also raises ethical concerns related to the potential for illegal activities and lack of regulation.

We believe that it is important to use our resources in a responsible and sustainable way, and that means not supporting industries that have a negative impact on the environment or society. Instead, we focus on utilizing renewable energy sources and implementing sustainable practices in all aspects of our operations. We are proud to offer a sustainable and responsible option for businesses looking to store and manage their data.

We understand that this decision may not align with the views of everyone, but we stand firm in our commitment to sustainability and ethical business practices.
