In order to implement a new program designed to offset carbon dioxide emissions generated from the use of NTTA’s hosting services, Telecommunications provider NTT America, a subsidiary of NTT Communications, recently announced that it has partnered with TerraPass.
Customers can choose the option at the time of their initial purchase of NTTA services or it can be purchased as an addition to existing services at any time.
NTTA says it has calculated the expected amount of annual power and resultant carbon pollution that its enterprise hosting and colocation services generate in a year, through its relationship with TerraPass. To aid finance of wind farms, farm power generated from methane gas digesters and landfill gas capture, the fee charged for TerraPass carbon offsets is used by TerraPass to finance carbon reduction programs.
Vini Handler, NTT America VP of product management and marketing stated “IT hardware and data centers are a surprising leading national contributor to carbon emissions. Through our partnership with TerraPass we are now able to offer our customers a simple and effective way to significantly shrink the carbon footprint of their enterprise hosting and colocation services.”
NTTA’s customer carbon offset program is one of a number of green initiatives being embark on by NTTA in data centers within the US and globally by NTT Communications.
NTT America also recently united with LYNX Medical Systems to host its software on the NTTA enterprise hosting platform.
