"The European Union wants data centers to be greener, the supranational body said as it outlined its digital strategy.
The EU Commission noted that data centers and telecoms are responsible for a significant environmental footprint, and “can and should become climate neutral by 2030.”
The decade ahead
“Digital solutions, and data in particular, will enable a fully integrated life-cycle approach, from design through sourcing of energy, raw materials and other inputs to final products until the end-of life stage.
