Chindata Group comes up with Zero-carbon solutions for Asia-Pacific Region

Leading carrier-neutral hyperscale data centre solution provider in Asia-Pacific emerging markets, Chindata Group was invited to participate in the Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce, which runs in parallel to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26).

The Nasdaq-listed company shared its zero-carbon actions for digital infrastructures in Asia-Pacific emerging markets with industry leaders, associations, and NGOs in response to climate change. This development also comes a few days after Chindata Group joining the RE100 initiative and subsequently announcing that it will use 100 per cent renewable power across its data centres by 2040.

During the session, Zoe Zhuang, vice president of Chindata Group, pointed out that Chindata Group will continue to provide feasible zero-carbon solutions in Asia-Pacific emerging markets. The solutions comprise international carbon offsetting, cross-regional cooperation for a sustainable supply chain, and regional clean energy collaboration.

As China’s first technology company to propose a detailed carbon-neutral roadmap, Chindata Group is implementing net-zero carbon emissions solutions for digital infrastructure in China. It has taken several green power consumption initiatives, including direct green power trading, innovative regional green power consumption mechanisms, renewable energy power stations development, and integrated power Generation-Grid-Load-Storage projects.

Executive Secretary-General of Global Compact Network China stated that Chindata Group was a company that took up 0.014 per cent of China’s annual power consumption in 2020. He believed Chindata Group provided one of best practices to reduce carbon emissions for the Asia-Pacific digital economy by leading the industry to announce its carbon neutrality goals covering all of its next-generation hyperscale data centres around the globe.

The Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum brings together more than 10,000 public and private sector participants from over 120 countries, including the International Energy Agency, the International Trade Center, the World Resources Institute, and UNICEF. It will help catalyse coherent dialogue on critical climate, energy, and environment-related issues to enable rapid decarbonisation of the global economy, officials said.
