Our Sustainable Approach

100% renewable energy sources

The electricity that powers our data centers only comes from 100% renewable sources energy.

Read more about our Icelandic data centers ICE01, ICE02 as well as our Stockholm DC, SWE01.

Optimized Energy Efficiency

The heat generated in our data center facilities is used for house heating that passes on a big part of the electric energy that is used to power technology infrastructure as hot water that is used for central house heating systems. This increases the energy efficiency and lowers our customers TCO.

Power Efficiency

Our natural air-cooling systems keep our data center facilities at the optimal temperature and humidity all while ensuring that energy use is minimized across our campuses.

The use of renewable energy and promoting alternatives to the fuel economy have been part of atNorth’s DNA since its founding in 2010.

atNorth’s Climate Pledge

Encouraging sustainable operations

We already operate in a climate-friendly manner through many of our initiatives, but we will continue to drive new innovations to deploy circular economy principles with future data center expansion.

We will keep seeking opportunities to innovate with future expansion and allowing our customers to deploy large compute in a sustainable manner.
