Sep 09, 2020

“We are proud of the trust that we have gained and look forward to supporting Loopia in their continued delivery of high-quality services to their customers. Loopia's large customer base places high demands on operational reliability and scalability, which together with their high sustainability goals suits us extremely well”, says Magnus Angermund, CMO at EcoDataCenter.

EcoDataCenter launched the world's first carbon dioxide positive data center in 2018 and has a wide range of services that combine security and flexibility with a high level of sustainability from several aspects. The facility in Falun is built entirely out of wood and powered 100% by renewable energy sources. The surplus heat generated by the data center is utilized by municipally owned Falu Energi & Vatten, either directly for heating or as an important ingredient in the manufacturing of biofuel. This makes it a unique solution that truly ensures the data center’s sustainable standards. In addition to this, the facility has an extremely high level of physical and technical safety.

“We are Sweden's largest and fastest growing company in domain and hosting services; therefore, it is important that we make positive changes. Given our size, our chance to influence others is greater than our competitors. Since sustainability concerns us all in some aspect, we are now at the forefront of setting a new industry standard where the goal is to help our customers to greener IT”, says Hannah Johnsson Bittmann, Head of Sweden at Loopia.

The topic of Sustainable IT has been held back and downgraded on the agenda of sustainability work for a long time, despite the fact that it has had a major impact on the overall carbon footprint of companies. Now demands are increasing on companies to create a sustainable infrastructure, where IT plays an important part. The trend is welcomed by EcoDataCenter.

“We have the capacity to meet Loopia's high demands on safety, sustainability and accessibility. This is a big step for Loopia, and we hope that more companies follow their good example of ensuring climate-safe IT-services”, says Dan Andersson, operations manager for EcoDataCenter's facility in Falun.
