Open Source Climate Report

Get ready for CSRD with our unique open source CO2e report

Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive will have an impact on companies and their sustainability reporting. Finally, data will have to be linked to sustainability in a new and transparent way. If you want to get ahead and see how you can calculate your CO2 emissions from a data perspective, use our open-source report based on Green House Gas Protocol standards.

  • Direct Power Consumption – Customer Equipment

    The direct customer power consumption is measured at the customer equipment interface. The measuring data is obtained in kWh and is the same that is invoiced the customer. EcoDataCenter power purchase mix is then applied to distribute between sources. The embedded carbon from LCA calculations (kg CO2e/kWh) for the specific power sources is then multiplied with the actual consumed power. This give a specific kg CO2e value.

  • Shared Power Consumption – Datacenter Infrastructure

    To operate a datacenter the total power consumption consists of customer specific power consumption and everything else needed to provide the service (office, lights, etc.). This is the Datacenter Infrastructure. The reporting method divide this shared power consumption between all customers in a specific datacenter according to customer size. The size is based on the customer specific power consumption percentage of the total datacenter power consumption. Directly correlating to the datacenter PUE.

  • Shared Direct Datacenter Reserve Power Systems

    Every month EcoDataCenter conduct a test run of the reserve power, diesel generators, to ensure availability. These test runs consume diesel. Customer size percentage of the datacenter is the input value to distribute the CO2e emission from the test runs.

  • Shared Embedded Building Construction

    EcoDataCenter perform LCA of each specific datacenter building. The LCA of the specific building that each customer is hosted in are the source of the Shared embodied building construction. Actual customer power consumption of the datacenter total power capacity of the datacenter building is used to distribute the monthly depreciation of the embodied emission. The applied method allocates a monthly CO2e value based on the total LCA value from the building, depreciated over 40 years.

  • Shared Embedded Data Center Infrastructure

    EcoDataCenter also conduct calculation based on subcontractor data of datacenter infrastructure as batteries, cooling equipment, ect. A LCA database is developed with a total CO2e amount. The total amount is distributed on each customer according to size, same principle as mentioned above. The depreciation (lifetime) is estimated for infrastructure components to be 15 years. EcoDataCenter also have a re-use policy where no components are considered waste after 15 years.
