Hitachi Vantara has announced a new division called ‘Sustainability Solutions and Services’. The aim is to aid organizations in achieving environmental and decarbonization goals. This is of particular concern with many energy hungry IT systems.

Recent research suggests that 61 percent of eco-data leaders consider decarbonising the data centre as the number one step they are taking to reduce their carbon footprint.

The Sustainability Solutions and Services function has generated a report, which provides a structure for customers to define and implement a realistic, measurable roadmap towards achieving carbon neutrality targets.

The recommended steps to achieve energy reduction and a lower environmental burden include:

Green IT

This is about gaining a holistic understanding of the IT footprint through insights to decarbonize IT assets and operations, including application and asset energy efficiency, power supply and equipment, scope 3 cloud emissions, energy efficient IT architecture and data stewardship.

Manufacturing

This is about understanding energy consumption and carbon emissions across manufacturing processes and value chains to realise business growth through lower carbon intensity and resource efficiency.

Facilities

Through premises it is important to create an optimized system built for your needs by incorporating sensors, advanced analytics, and control systems to achieve greater energy efficiencies and cost savings.

Data and analytics

By assessing data it is possible to co-create solutions for greater impact on social and environmental issues that matter the most to the firm. This can also help companies to make informed decisions about its process and create solutions that will truly impact the bottom line.

Measurable is actionable

It is not simply sufficient to collect and analyse data, it needs to be reacted to. This includes approaches to define and implement a realistic, measurable roadmap towards achieving carbon neutrality targets.
