LEED-certified green data centers use less energy and fewer resources
Oct. 18, 2017—(Shanghai, China)—Today, during the first Greenbuild China conference being held in Shanghai, USGBC and China Software Testing Center (CSTC) signed an MOU to collaborate on promoting sustainable, energy-efficient LEED data centers in China.
Today, China has assumed a tremendous leadership position in stemming the tide of climate change and protecting its citizens and precious natural resources. As mandated in President Xi’s 13th Five Year Plan, an important part of this role involves improving the efficiency and sustainability of its infrastructure. Please know that all of us who care about the future applaud those efforts. They will greatly benefit each and every one of us who call this planet home.
