London, United Kingdom – Wednesday, 12th July 2023
AtlasEdge, a leading pan-European Edge data centre provider, and Northshore, a technology-enabled engineering company founded to sustainably support digital infrastructure and positively impact data centre performance, have announced a partnership to develop and implement an operational sustainability strategy and execution plan.
Under the terms of the partnership, Northshore will support with the creation of a programme focused on measurement, tracking and reduction of environmental impact to help benefit AtlasEdge customers. Utilising Northshore’s technology platform, data collection and validation are streamlined, enabling transparent environmental performance metrics on a portfolio wide basis.
The partnership will also see both companies work closely on executing local site audits, including assessing AtlasEdge’s alignment with the EU Data Centre Code of Conduct for Energy Efficiency Implementation, creating multi-year capital improvement plans, and carrying out metering improvement projects.
Today’s announcement represents the latest move by AtlasEdge towards supporting the development of a truly sustainable digital society. The company became a signatory of the Climate Neutral Data Center Pact in December 2022 and recently secured a €725 million financing facility which included several sustainability-linked targets focused on efficiency and renewable energy usage.
“Sustainability is at the core of our mission to create Europe’s leading Edge platform. This partnership with Northshore will allow us to rigorously measure our environmental impact and build a portfolio which sets the benchmark for sustainability within the European data centre industry.”Ian Hammond, SVP Operations, AtlasEdge

We are excited to partner with AtlasEdge and integrate Northshore’s sustainably performance platform into these workflows to streamline AtlasEdge’s ability to manage its sustainability performance, portfolio wide.”Matt Renner, Chief Executive Officer, Northshore
