DALLAS – JUNE 8, 2020 – Aligned, a leading data center provider offering innovative, sustainable and adaptable colocation and build-to-scale solutions for cloud, enterprise, and managed service providers, announces it has been named a 2020 Green Lease Leader by the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance.
Launched in 2014, Green Lease Leaders sets national standards for what constitutes a green lease, while recognizing property owners and their customers who modernize their leases to spur collaborative action on energy efficiency, cost-savings, air quality, and sustainability in buildings. Aligned has achieved SILVER Recognition for evolving its sustainability standards to implement green leasing practices that drive reduced operating costs, shared energy savings and sustainability benefits across its entire portfolio of adaptive data centers. To receive this recognition, Aligned qualified for credits in energy efficiency and sustainability best practices such as utility data tracking and sharing, cost recovery for capital improvements and sustainability training.
“We are proud to be named a 2020 Green Lease Leader and help forge the path forward for green lease standards in data centers,” says Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned. “Aligning our business strategy, technologies and infrastructure closely with customers’ sustainability goals and requirements has been at the core of what we do since our inception. Implementing green lease standards across our portfolio is another way Aligned helps customers improve power usage effectiveness (PUE) and reduce operating costs, while supporting our mission towards a clean energy future.”
Founded on the premise of solving the world’s toughest sustainability challenges associated with data center infrastructure, energy consumption and water usage, Aligned’s commitment to sustainability is woven throughout its corporate fabric. In February, Aligned announced its increased commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability by matching 100% of the IT loads across its data center portfolio with certified renewable energy. The Company’s proprietary cooling technology, Delta3, utilizes up to 80% less energy and 85% less water to reduce PUE, improve environmental impact and lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for customers. Delta3 allows customers to Expand on Demand, incrementally scaling in place up to 50 kW per rack without stranding capacity.
