Since the company has been formed,

CDC has focussed on sustainability

as a part of its operating  charter.


To this extent it complies with all green legislation, AS/NZS ISO
14001:2004 – Environmental Management Systems and targets
to reduce its water consumption and carbon footprint. It also
provides green reporting for its clients.


CDC uses a closed water-cooling system. This enables CDC to significantly reduce the amount of water that is required by the data centre on an ongoing basis. This is reduced by a minimum of 50,000 litres of clean drinking water per day through clean, air-cooled, ultra high efficient ‘chiller’ technology.
