  • Identifying and managing risks related to its business and establishing protocol to prevent modern slavery in accordance with its policy
  • Providing equal opportunities for our employees and avoiding unlawful discrimination in accordance with our Equality and Diversity Policy.

Environment

Telehouse is working to embed environmental sustainability best practice in our operations and concentrating business resources in areas that are seen as high risk or have significant carbon emissions, and where we can make the most significant environmental improvements across the business. We strive to adopt the highest standards and encourage behaviours across our operations that enhance energy efficiency, competitiveness and reduce our environmental impact.

We are committed to providing excellent customer service and to conduct business in an ethical, social and environmentally responsible manner. We are proactive and committed to continually improving our overall environmental and energy performance by establishing an environmental policy, strategy, setting objectives and targets. The strategy is focused on climate change action, energy efficiency and green procurement, which support the carbon reduction ambitions of many of our stakeholders. Telehouse is sourcing 100% of its energy for its operations from renewable sources.

We acknowledge that the nature of our industry can have an impact on energy consumption and detrimental environmental impact on our natural resources. However, the growth in cloud, virtualisation and innovative cooling technologies are contributing towards data centre efficiency. Industry experts recommend encouraging first and foremost efficient use of IT devices, as they can turn over quickly and deliver rapid improvements. Telehouse customers benefit from housing their IT infrastructure within an efficient and resilient data centre facility that provides a portfolio of energy efficient hardware and the world’s first multi-storey indirect adiabatic cooling system, designed to BREEAM Excellent standard in the Telehouse North Two data centre.
