The University’s commitment to sustainability extends to our technological operations, exemplified by the Butts Wynd Data Centre’s accreditation to the Gold CEEDA (Certified Energy Efficient Data Centre) standard.

To ensure continued sustainability, the Data Centre Operations Group conducts quarterly reviews covering performance, energy management, improvements, and overall facility health and maintenance.

The University has consolidated its servers and storage, transitioning from School-based facilities to a central data centre. Over the past decade, hardware has been systematically removed from several schools, reducing the number of locations from over 45 to around five. This streamlining process not only optimises resource use, but also aligns with the University’s sustainability objectives. 

The University has also moved from traditional telephones to Microsoft Teams Phone, enhancing communication capabilities and contributing to a significant reduction in overall energy consumption.
