Embodied carbon considerations for data centers

EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Part of Ramboll & I3 Solutions Group has published “Embodied carbon considerations for data centers” which explores the opportunity to contribute positively by reducing greenhouse gas emissions while reducing the embodied carbon emissions during planning, design, and procurement.

Embodied carbon includes all emissions not attributed to operations and the use of electrical energy and water in the day-to-day running of the data center. These include those from extraction, manufacturing, and transportation, as well as installation of materials and components used to create the built environment.


Performing a deliberate analysis and making design decisions using the Whole Life Carbon approach, considering both Embodied Carbon/Energy and Operational Carbon/Energy, provides the opportunity to contribute positively to the global goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As established and thought-leading data center MEP design firms, EYP Mission Critical Facilities, Part of Ramboll and i3 Solutions Group are committed to knowledge sharing and open debate in the data center industry.


This is the fifth published paper from the EYP MCF, Part of Ramboll & i3 white paper series to help decision-makers and data center owners play their part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions to move towards carbon neutrality by 2030.
