EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres' Energy Efficiency

The EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres' Energy Efficiency is a voluntary initiative aimed at reducing the environmental, economic, and energy-supply security impact of data centres.

The Code of Conduct has an equipment and system-level scope, focusing on two primary areas – the IT load (IT capacity available for the power consumed) and facilities load (equipment and systems that support the IT load, such as cooling systems, PDUs, and UPS).

The flexible and adaptable Code of Conduct aims to encourage cost-effective adoption of energy-efficient practices in data centre facilities. Data centre owners and managers can become participants by making a strong (but not legally binding) commitment to Code of Conduct requirements. Organisations such as vendors and government agencies can become endorsers by agreeing to use the standards to develop products and programmes to help data centres achieve Code of Conduct objectives.
