A roadmap towards Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030
Updated: Jul 19, 2021
We are very pleased to issue our July Newsletter!
Can’t believe we are already into the second half of 2021! Time is flying as we emerge from the global pandemic. The previous 14 months or so have been an incredibly challenging time for all of us, our clients and partners, and all of our families, and we all look forward to better days in the future. If there was still any question that our industry is critical to the function of everyday life, and economic growth and progress in this country, let alone the world, that has been put to rest.
The importance of the mission-critical facility/datacenter to consumers, students, commercial businesses, governments, and organizations/institutions became clearer than ever as we all had to make adjustments to the way we work, learn, interact, share information and entertain. Without this building type that we all focus on, managing our everyday lives would have been completely different and perhaps had even further devastating effects on the world around us. And while this was no doubt a quickly growing industry even before Covid-19, we believe its growth will be even stronger because of it. We personally want to thank our fantastic team here at EYP MCF for the amazing work they have done to help keep our client's growth plans intact and maintain their operations against the many logistics, scheduling, health, and travel challenges faced. We also want to thank our clients for the continued faith they have shown in our firm during this time and the many opportunities you have given us to partner.
With this immense growth, our clients are even more focused on sustainability, energy efficiency, and GHG effect on data centers. As some of you have seen, EYP MCF has partnered with i3 Solutions to develop a series of white papers around exactly this topic and have released the first 2 papers already (the 3rd is coming soon!). As a consultant devoted to this building type, we believe it is part of our mandate to research and innovate around this critical area.
Additionally, we are working with some of our clients to study and implement changes based on this initiative. You will see links to the program below and can download the papers there or on our new sustainability webpage, where you will find additional information with some interesting project case studies, articles, podcasts, and webinars that we have recently been involved in.
Lastly, we continue to see lots of consolidation in the industry, as well as properties changing hands and newer players investing in the space. Please let us know if we can help with any due diligence work as our cross-country reach and global partners allow us to quickly review and assess facilities in the US and abroad for our customers who are involved in transactions.
Have a great summer and look forward to connecting again later in the year!
Please enjoy the newsletter, and let us know how we can help in any way.
Rick and Brian.
