Environmental Responsibility

ADC recognizes that data centers are utilizing a growing percentage of the total electrical energy consumed, currently estimated to be two percent of the total energy in the U.S. alone. As a baseline, ADC utilizes the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards as a template. ADC has dedicated significant resources and design efforts to ensure that our centers are designed and operated in a responsible manner, maximizing the productivity of every watt of power used, and employing construction methods and materials that minimize environmental impact.
