We’ve designed our infrastructure and processes to align with the following environmental standards:
- LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a building rating achievement given to facilities that meet the standards of the U.S. Green Building Council. Internap is a LEED Accredited Professional. Currently our Santa Clara facility is LEED Silver certified, and our Dallas facility is expected to achieve LEED Gold in Summer 2012.
- Both our Santa Clara (first public data center in the U.S. to achieve this distinction) and Dallas facilities are Green Globe Award winners, an honor given by the Green Building Initiative. The Green Building Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to accelerate the adoption of building practices that result in energy-efficient, healthier and environmentally sustainable buildings by promoting credible and practical green building approaches for commercial construction.
- More than 90% of Internap’s Dallas data center appliances, computers, monitors and printers are Energy Star Compliant. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy. Founded in 1992 for the purpose of saving money and protecting the environment through energy-efficient products and practices, the Energy Star label is now on major appliances, office equipment, lighting, home electronics and more.
