Verne Global Finland holds The Climate Neutral Company certification granted by South Pole. This means that we are truly committed to environmentally friendly operations and third-party climate neutral certifications to prove the commitment.
Leading the way in sustainability
Cloud services have a significant environmental impact. Worldwide, data centers use around two percent of all the electricity produced, and this figure is estimated to rise to eight percent by the end of the decade. Companies wanting to procure cloud services, and that care about their reputation, should ensure their service provider is committed to carbon-neutral operations.
We are committed to environmentally friendly operations. Along to paying attention to all our operations’ environmental friendliness, there are a few key features we would like to hihlight. These make us the leaders in data center sustainability and key factors in having the climate neutral certificate: Own Solar Power Plant on top of The Rock data center ( View here to follow the power plant production in real time), Waste heat recovery at The Air data center and 100% renewable energy.
Solar power plant
Alongside wind sourced electricity, The Rock data center utilizes its own solar power plant for cooling during the sunny summer months. The plant is 2600 square meters and has been fully operational since spring 2020.

Waste heat recovery
Data center operations create a lot of heat that can be reused instead of just pushing it outside. The Air utilizes waste heat recovery and distributes the surplus heat to district heating system where recycled heat can be used for ie. delivering heating for local housing.
The source of electricity used to power a data center is the most important factor to consider when it comes to climate friendly data center operation. Verne Global Finland has used renewable electricity from generated by wind turbines from day 1. Finland's abundance of green energy means that even the biggest deployments can be powered with green energy.
