Our mission is to help customers harness the power of the digital age to drive better business outcomes that are more sustainable, responsible and energy efficient. We are passionate about protecting our planet and we will achieve our company mission in the most sustainable and ethical way possible.

Learn more about how we actively invest in Environmental Sustainability in our annual Environmental Reports.

Designed and engineered to support the environment

We build and operate a footprint of the most energy efficient data centres in the country, which serves as a reminder that organisations can be engineered to both support the environment and improve business efficiencies.

Optimising efficiencies and reducing our carbon footprint starts with our commitment to reducing our own carbon emissions which we achieve through continuous business improvement.

Sustainability is embedded in our corporate DNA, with our in-house team of Engineers dedicated to building and continuously looking for ways to fine tune our fleet and consistently maintain the most operationally sustainable data centres in the market.

Targeting zero-net emissions

NEXTDC are 100% carbon neutral, certified under the Australian Government's Climate Active program. With a focus on supporting our business, the environment, and our customers long-term needs in the most sustainabile and ethical way, we are dedicated to helping our customers and partners achieve the same through our carbon neutral solutions.

By meticulously measuring PUE rates and adhering to the rigorous standards we must comply with to maintain our NABERS 5-star rating, NEXTDC remains dedicated to continuously improving the benchmarks in the industry for data centre operational and sustainability excellence.

Harnessing renewables to power business

During a recent research project with Climate Council Australia, NEXTDC's commitment to a more sustainable future through design innovations and engineering excellence were highlighted. M1's solar array has already generated close to 2.2 million kWh of electricity since it began operating, offsetting close to 700 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year – the equivalent to taking 200 cars off the road.

Sustainability innovation recognised

In 2021, NEXTDC launched NEXTneutral: a service which allows our customers to offset all the carbon generated by their IT equipment and environments colocated in any of our data centres nationally. This passion project was the catalyst for our nomination and subsequent #10 position in the Australian Financial Review’s 2021 Most Innovative Companies awards (Technology category).
