Our Sustainability Policy

To be the partner of choice, developing and delivering a high-performance, de-carbonizing platform, for organizations wishing to lower their carbon footprint, we developed a Sustainability Policy in line with our business.

Our Sustainability Policy outlines our responsibility to the environment, society and the economy:

  • Our environmental focus is to enable circularity and be dependable in climate matters by minimising waste and optimising energy usage.
  • Our social focus is to empower the community and our people.
  • Our governance focus is to have integrity in everything we do and to make responsible decisions that always consider the environment.

Dependable in climate – first matters

Using energy from renewable sources in all our operations is a key step to maintain low GHG emission and reduce overall carbon footprint.

Enabling a circular economy

Minimizing all waste is a critical initiative for atNorth as well as continuing to drive innovation and deploy circular economy principles.

Empowering the community

atNorth’s mission is to build a sustainable business that contributes to the surrounding community.

Integrity in all we do

Sustainability and innovation are our guiding principles. We will continue to innovate, develop and create a future proof de-carbonizing platform.

Based on our company values, atNorth have outlined a set of goals and objectives to guide the company’s sustainability agenda for the next five years.

We will continually report against these targets and seek to align our measures with global standards including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Waste heat re-purposed

In partnership with Sweden’s energy provider, Stockholm Exergi, the atNorth SWE01 campus captures the heat outputs generated by the site’s data halls, recycling all residual heat through the district heating plant to provide heat and hot water for local residents. The initiative has helped:

  • boost the data center efficiency
  • reduce our carbon footprint and overall impact on the climate
  • give back and support the local community

Community support

Contributing to the local community has always been fundamental to our underlying values. atNorth supports relevant sustainability initiatives that matter most to our business and align with our sustainability policy. Emphasis is placed on selecting projects that focus on innovation in the energy and technology sector, prevention activities, supporting marginal groups and the protection of the environment.

With atNorth, we have already seen our CO2 emissions decrease by 85% and energy usage halved, which is paving a clear path to radically changing the digital footprint of our entire IT infrastructure.”
