The European Code of Conduct has been created in response to increasing energy consumption in data centres and the need to reduce the related environmental, economic and energy supply security impacts. The aim is to inform and stimulate data centre operators and owners to reduce energy consumption in a cost-effective manner without hampering the mission critical function of data centres. The Code of Conduct aims to achieve this by improving understanding of energy demand within the data centre, raising awareness, and recommending energy efficient best practice and targets.

Hitzinger UK is an Endorser of this voluntary Code of Conduct which is aimed at bringing interested stakeholders together, including the coordination of other similar activities by manufacturers, vendors, consultants and utilities.
