We are hosting our internal IT at the Microsoft Azure Cloud which aims as providing sustainable datacenters and cloud infrastructure.
Azure has committed to focus on four key areas of environmental impact to local communities—carbon, water, waste, and ecosystems. One of their goals is to use 100% renewable energy by 2025. For further information, please see Azure Sustainability.
We are hosting our SAAS solutions for our clients via A1, the leading communication provider in Austria. Their data center is located in Arsenal, Vienna, uses energy from 100% renewable energy sources. The majority of the electricity supply is sourced from large-scale European hydropower. The remaining components include wind energy, biomass, solar energy, and biogas. As a result, the associated environmental impact is assessed as 0.00 g/kWh of CO2 emissions, according to information provided by A1. Cold water circulation cabinets with 100% free cooling function are used for the cooling of the servers. A1 also holds an ISO 5001 and ISO 14001 certificate.
Note: The CO2 footprint associated with our SAAS solutions for our clients is currently not considered in MIC's Corporate Carbon Footprint.
