“ EPA applauds Aligned Data Centers for its leadership position in the green power marketplace ,” said James Critchfield , Program Manager of EPA ’ s Green Power Partnership . “ Aligned Data Centers is an excellent example for other organisations in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through green power investment and use .”
Since its founding , Aligned has made environmental stewardship and sustainability core pillars of its customerfocused business strategy and expanding data centre portfolio , beginning with the innovative , energy-efficient design of its data centre platform . Aligned ’ s patented and award-winning Delta cooling technology , combined with a state-of-the-art waterless heat rejection system , reduces power consumption , eliminates water usage and decreases costs associated with data centre cooling . This cooling technology also delivers significant efficiency enhancements across rising rack densities associated with next-generation workloads such as High-Performance Computing ( HPC ) and AI / ML applications .
As part of its Aligned Insight platform , the company employs OriginMark , an enhanced material traceability system , which further accelerates supply chain decarbonisation and circular asset management across its data centre portfolio . This technology provides Aligned and its customers a more transparent and granular view of their embodied carbon footprint by tracing the complete life cycle of data centre equipment and devices as well as identifying material recovery and recycling options . Aligned also partners with nZero to provide accurate data of its operational carbon footprint , which helps inform the sustainability strategies of both the company and its customers .
Aligned ’ s environmentally focused initiatives also extend to its historic green financing , which includes the industry-first green data centre securitisation and the first-ever US data centre sustainability-linked financing . Aligned ’ s sustainability-linked financing is tied to the company ’ s environmental , social and governance ( ESG ) objectives and Key Performance Indicators ( KPIs ), including a commitment to match 100 % of Aligned ’ s annual energy consumption to zero-carbon renewable energy . �
