Fujitsu’s Noble Park Data Centre Achieves an Australian First in Environmental Performance with 4-Star NABERS Rating

Customers benefit from externally validated energy efficiency statements

Sydney, October 31, 2013

Fujitsu announces its Noble Park Data Centre in Melbourne has achieved a NABERS Energy for data centres rating, making it the first in Australia to be certified using the NABERS data centres tools. Significantly, it has been assessed as a 4 star facility, which represents good performance on the NABERS 6 star scale.

NABERS is a national rating system that measures energy efficiency, water usage, waste management and indoor air quality within the built environment. NABERS ratings have been incorporated into numerous policy targets, and some assets in the commercial office building sector are required to disclose their NABERS Energy rating under Commonwealth legislation.

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said, “NABERS is a comprehensive and trusted assessment that has provided our customers with validation of our application of best practices in this area. We have made significant investments in our data centre infrastructure in Australia including a recent upgrade of the Noble Park facility. We are pleased to be awarded a 4-star NABERS rating, which is an excellent reflection of the focus we have placed on this important aspect of our business.”

Tom Grosskopf, Director of the Metropolitan Branch at the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage - which delivers the NABERS program across Australia - said, “This is excellent news for the data centre industry, for businesses and for the environment. By rating its facility with NABERS Energy for data centres, Fujitsu is demonstrating its commitment to sustainability and helping to make efficient centres the industry standard.”

Green Global Consulting undertook the infrastructure audit for the NABERS certification. Its founder and CEO, Bob Sharon, said: “This achievement is due acknowledgement of Fujitsu’s understanding that efforts to reduce carbon emissions and pollution can also be used to boost the bottom line. Our organisation was delighted to have the opportunity to work with Fujitsu to combine our shared vision for the planet. And we are honoured to be part of this Australian first.”

Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand was recognised earlier this month by the Longhaus Australian Data Centre Providers Pulse 2013-2014 report with two awards: The Peak Vendor Award for the most comprehensive data centre offering and the Green Star Award for market leading sustainability practices.

Fujitsu data centres have a power usage effectiveness (PUE) target of 1.6 and the company reports all greenhouse gas emissions produced by Noble Park, as well as all others in its Australian data centre network, to the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting System (NGERS).
