At Consultix, we prioritize energy consumption at the highest standards in all our activities. With our energy-efficient IT infrastructure and data centers, we not only assist you in reducing your carbon footprint but also contribute to a transition towards a more sustainable digitalization. We are continuously seeking new innovative ways to improve our practices and make a positive impact on the environment.
Our goal is to create value by collaborating with our suppliers, customers, and partners to enhance efficiency in the energy-intensive operation of data centers. Through this collaboration, we aim to improve our carbon footprint by 20% by the year 2025 compared to 2020. Our long-term objective is to power our platforms with 100% clean renewable energy. By leveraging intelligent and sustainable digital platforms, we are committed to making a significant contribution to energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.
We prioritize the procurement of energy-efficient systems and the implementation of energy-optimized architectures. Through these approaches, we are able to deliver efficient operations and services with minimal energy consumption for cooling, thereby reducing overall energy usage.
PUE measures the energy required for operating the infrastructure beyond the IT systems. The PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) value in our data centers, according to DIN EN 50600, is already at an industry-leading 1.3. Efficient cooling and conditioning of the ambient air play a significant role in achieving this. Since 2014, we have been making efforts to continuously improve our efficiency through the adoption of advanced technologies.
Consultix was honored with the German Data Center Award in 2014 for its design of an exceptionally energy-efficient data center. With its industry-leading PUE value, Consultix ranks among the top 5% of companies in terms of energy efficiency.
Our goal is to reduce our PUE and therefore our CO2 footprint by 20% for IT performance by 2025. We aim to achieve this by implementing even more energy-efficient systems, optimizing their management, utilizing waste heat more effectively, and shifting towards carbon-neutral electricity instead of relying on fossil fuels.
Consultix is committed to using renewable energy sources, including photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and wind power, to generate carbon-neutral electricity wherever feasible and appropriate. By harnessing the power of solar energy through PV systems and utilizing locally generated electricity, we aim to reduce our reliance on traditional energy sources and minimize our carbon footprint.
