“DCI Indonesia is dedicated to sustainability and it’s the first data center in Indonesia to embrace renewable energy using bio-masses”.
Today, DCI Indonesia announces its commitment to move toward climate neutrality by lowering operational emissions and embracing biomass-based energy sources.
At DCI, sustainability is a key component of our focus in assisting our clients and in improving our contribution to the environment. DCI Indonesia is dedicated to taking part in urgently tackling the global climate change within our operations, value chain, and the larger industry. In addition, DCI is aware of the Paris Agreement’s goals to keep global warming to 1.5°C in which Indonesia ratified in 2016 via the Law no. 16 of 2016 – concerning the Ratification of the Paris Agreement and as such, this effort is also in line with the 9 national development priority actions outlined through the “Nawa Cita”, which is a national commitment towards low-carbon and climate-resilient development, with climate change adaptation and mitigation as an integrated and cross-sectoral priority in the National Development agenda. Our initiative will be a crucial step in ensuring that DCI keeps advancing our investments and technologies to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
These sustainability measures are anticipated to have a big influence on the larger digital ecosystem. DCI Indonesia intends to continue working with our stakeholders to promote impact and transparency.
“To meet our goal, DCI Indonesia customers will now be able to request carbon-neutral sources in 2 ways: one, DCI will offer Renewable Certificates to offset carbon emissions or two, DCI will offer clients the ability to use biomasses for their electricity” said Marco Cioffi , Vice President Director of DCI Indonesia.
In addition to the use of renewable certificates and biomasses, DCI also committed to numerous initiatives to reduce its emissions and water usage. On the electrical part DCI is currently optimizing the configuration of electrical systems to consume less electricity; on the mechanical side, DCI is optimizing pumps, chillers and increasing the temperature of the data halls based on customer requests.
DCI has also implemented a predictive maintenance system that allows an Artificial Intelligence system to get an early warning before incidents happen both on electrical and mechanical.
