Sustainability Management for Data Centers

Class-G is an industry-specific way to measure and communicate your commitment to the sustainability of your data centers. As you know, significant reduction in energy consumption by data centers is usually not feasible as required by Energy Star, LEED and other LEED-like programs. Class-G’s identification, tracking and measurement tool was crafted by nationally-recognized industry leaders in IT management and certified sustainability engineers. It identifies the sustainable actions you can accomplish, not what you can’t. The Class-G system rates all possible actions according to environmental priority, and helps you measure yours accordingly.
