By joining a Climate Change Agreement with the support of Utilitywise, Virtus is better enabled to demonstrate commitment to managing the carbon impact of its operations. In doing so, Virtus provides clearer visibility to customers into the effect of carbon legislation on their cost of service at a time when they may need to understand and report on their own compliance.
Neil Cresswell, CEO, Virtus, said, ‘Virtus’ successful securing of a CCA is further proof of the company’s continued commitment to the improvement of our environmental and operational efficiency. Now that Virtus’ flagship data centre, London2, is complete which has been designed from the outset as a model of efficiency to meet the growing demand for scalable, reliable, on-demand colocation services, we look forward to continue to working with Utilitywise to assist us in applying for and managing our CCA requirements on an ongoing basis.’
Tim Hipperson, head of supplier relations and regulation at Utilitywise, added, ‘Virtus proved itself to be a very environmentally conscientious company from the outset and by working with experts at Utilitywise, was able to complete the CCA application process, from site visit to CCA activation, in just four weeks.’
