These projects are led by the Center of Excellence in Engineering (CoE), which develops innovative technological solutions to increase the energy and water efficiency of data centers and are responsible for Scala’s portfolio having the lowest PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) in the region.
CARBON EMISSIONS ARE ORGANIZED INTO THREE CATEGORIES, CALLED SCOPES:
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly from operations owned or controlled by the company (e.g., stationary emissions from generator combustion).
Scala evaluates the use of biomethane, hydrogen, and batteries
Indirect GHG emissions from the generation of electricity, steam, heating, or cooling purchased by the company. Most part of possible emissions from a data center are in this scope!
Scala records zero emissions in this scope
Indirect emissions (not included in Scope 2) which occur in the company’s value chain, such as those linked to the company’s operations, raw material acquired, business travel and employee commuting, waste disposal, transport, and distribution.
Scala is the only player to neutralize 100% of this scope
AND CERTIFIED ENERGY
We operate with 100% renewable energy and certified by The International REC Standard since 2020.
We are committed to achieving Net Zero emissions of greenhouse gases according to the SBTi (Science-Based Targets Initiative) methodology. There are below the actions already taken:
• Scala’s portfolio has the lowest PUE in Latin America (< 1.4).
We support projects that, in addition to significantly reducing carbon emissions each year, offer a range of sustainable development benefits to local communities. We are proud of this approach which links social impact to environmental actions as the fundamental pillar of our sustainability strategy.
SCALED BY SOCIAL
In partnership with Furukawa’s Green IT Program, we direct waste from the disposal of structured cabling products from our data centers to recycling, thus, promoting its sustainable destination. More than 5.7 tons of cables have already been recycled due to this partnership. In addition, Green IT promotes the circular economy to progressively reduce environmental impacts in the data center segment and the value returned to Scala is reinvested in social actions for the community.
