EdgeConneX Breaks Sustainability Barriers — Earns Platinum Level in Zero Waste to Landfill at its Amsterdam Campus

Today, the company has announced its Amsterdam Campus has achieved Zero Waste to Landfill Operations Platinum level through the UL Environmental Claim Validation Program (a globally recognized standard). This includes 100% diversion, with 3% thermal processing with energy recovery, using UL 2799, Environmental Claim Validation Procedure for Zero Waste to Landfill. 

This announcement follows their recent achievement of formal validation by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and near-term science-based emissions reduction targets. 

“By achieving operational zero waste, EdgeConneX improves resource economy and efficiency and paves the way for additional organizational sustainability priorities. The EdgeConneX Amsterdam data center UL 2799 validation sets the standard for future waste reduction and improved waste disposal operations in all EdgeConneX-operated facilities worldwide.” – Dick Theunissen, Managing Director – EMEA, EdgeConneX

“Waste diversion can save resources, protect the environment, and reflect corporate social responsibility. It can also help companies obtain economic benefits by reducing production and operating costs, and most importantly, helps reduce carbon emissions to achieve carbon neutrality goals. Waste diversion has become an indispensable and important part of a company’s carbon reduction strategy, and we’re proud to support companies — including EdgeConneX — on this journey.” – Michael Savarie, sustainability program manager for the Retail and Consumer Products group at UL Solutions
