Innovation Name: NEXTneutral – certified carbon offsets for data centre services
Awards: 10th Most Innovative Technology Company
Climate change caused by human-induced carbon emissions represents a global threat. NEXTDC has launched a carbon neutral solution called NEXTneutral whereby we enable our customers to offset the carbon generated by their IT equipment and environments that are colocated in any of their data centres, nationally.
NEXTneutral operates the same way as you would tick a box to offset carbon associated with commercial flights. The carbon is pre-calculated for customers by KW, costing less than a cup of coffee p/mth. NEXTneutral is a not-for-profit value-added service. 100% of the funds collected is used to source carbon credits through their partnership with Qantas Future Planet.
