Ang Kian Seng, BCA’s group director, Environmental Sustainability Group said, “Data centres are an integral part of our digital economy ecosystem. With increased connectivity and demand for high bandwidth data, the need for data centres is set to grow further. As data centres consume large amounts of energy, it is important to ensure that they are designed and built with sustainable green features and operated in the most energy efficient way. We therefore worked closely with IMDA and other stakeholders to develop the BCA-IMDA Green Mark Scheme for Data Centres. Through the Green Mark Scheme, we would like to encourage industry partners like Telin Singapore to go green and commit to lowering energy consumption through sustainable designs of data centres.”
