More data centers are transitioning to renewable energy sources. As this happens, Scope 3 becomes a data center’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As this category of emissions is also the least reported and understood, quantifying Scope 3 emissions is one of the most important issues the industry is facing.

In this paper you will be able to:

  1. Gain a deeper understanding into Scope 3 GHG emissions in data centers
  2. Utilize assessment tools and calculators to estimate a data center's carbon footprint, which can be useful for organizations looking to measure and reduce their environmental impact
  3. Identify best practices for reducing emissions and learn more about insights into the embodied carbon of capital goods, which represent the majority of a data center’s Scope 3 emissions
  4. Explore the future of data centers, discussing the role of IT and facility infrastructure in the embodied carbon profile over time
