Going Green?

Choosing a data centre partner that offers a sustainable solution isn't just the right thing to do, it's also much more cost effective.

At VIRTUS, we're committed to reducing the environmental impact of our data centres as much as possible. That's why we only ever procure our energy from 100% renewable sources - solar, wind or tidal energy. Doing this saves over 45,000,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, and means we can pass on operating efficiency savings directly to our customers.

We go further

VIRTUS' LONDON2 facility in Hayes is certified 'Excellent' by the efficiency accreditations agency BREEAM. This places our data centre in the top 10% of commercial buildings in the UK in terms of efficiency, and covers everything from waste recycling to how our employees travel to work, encompassing electric vehicle charging points at every site and where our suppliers are sourced. 

Not all of our competitors in London can say this, but VIRTUS is proud to have been ISO50001 accredited at every one of our sites to showcase our commitment to the very best environmental standards. From harvesting rainwater to reduce sanitary water consumption at our data centres, to building out our sites in a phased deployment, we're always developing new ways to not only create more efficient and cost-effective buildings for us and our customers, but also protect the local communities in which VIRTUS is based. This means we're held accountable for not only maintaining the standards we hold now, but also that we're on track to further improving efficiency in the future.
