Crown Hosting customers benefit from best-in-class operation efficiency and a 99% reduction in carbon emissions

The UK government has legislated to end the country’s contribution to global warming by 2050 by becoming net zero.

To do this, we all must play our part. Every buying decision, across all sectors, is a chance to reduce our carbon footprint and inch closer to net zero. 

The role technology plays to help combat climate change and cut carbon emissions cannot be underestimated. Embracing technology can help reduce your emissions in many different areas. From swapping to LED lighting and electric vehicles, through to changing from desktop computers to laptops and physical servers to hosted servers.

If you’re considering a digital transformation project, then your choice of data centre can make a meaningful contribution to reducing your organisation’s carbon footprint. 

Crown Hosting

Our Crown Hosting framework is an agreement between Crown Commercial Service and a supplier called Crown Hosting Data Centres Limited. 

The framework provides public sector organisations with access to physical data centre space and supplements the government’s Cloud First policy.

Although Cloud First has helped move many applications to the cloud, some applications either can’t make the transition in the short term or are too expensive to switch. 

This framework ensures that these applications can continue to be hosted for as long as is necessary, cheaply and securely.

By choosing to transition to a Crown Hosting facility, our customers save, on average, 75% on electricity usage and reduce their carbon emissions by 99.9% on relocated services.   

From the day the contract begins, you will benefit from best-in-class operational efficiency and, because all our data centres are powered by 100% renewable energy, we can provide the facts and data to help you report a significant reduction in emissions relating to the services that we provide.
