Building an Action Plan for Smart Water Management
Digital Realty, a leading global provider of data centre, co-location and interconnection solutions, was on a mission to improve its water strategy, minimise overall water use, ensure reliable performance and protect its operations from water-related risk.
Digital Realty Wanted To:
- Understand how much water was being used, and where, in its data centres
- Increase water resiliency and redundancy to better respond to growing water quantity and quality issues
- Improve monitoring and measurement through digital tools
Partnering with Ecolab, they developed a three-step action plan:
With Ecolab’s Smart Water Navigator and a plan for action, Digital Realty now has a more effective strategy to manage water at its data centres, a greater understanding of water in its organisation and the ability to improve and protect its operations, watersheds and communities.
Ecolab’s Smart Water Navigator is a publicly available tool that helps businesses understand water-related risks in financial terms to inform responsible growth and generates an actionable step-by-step guide for each facility, tailored by industry, location and current water performance.
