July 25, 2008 -- CommScope Enterprise Solutions has joined The Green Grid, a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems. As a general member of The Green Grid, CommScope will collaborate with other member companies and gain access to information about energy efficiency advancements within data centers.
Over the last decade, CommScope says it has taken the initiative to significantly reduce its carbon footprint when manufacturing its premier network infrastructure solutions. The company maintains that via its ReelSmart cable reel recycling program, EcoPower cabinets, and continued use of renewable material, it is helping to safeguard the environment through its own best practices. In addition, CommScope voluntarily reports its greenhouse gas emissions, numbers that have steadily decreased since 2002, claims the company.
CommScope's green efforts also include passing energy-efficient and energy-saving practices on to its customers. For example, the company says its Intelligent Building Infrastructure Solutions (IBIS) employs a single backbone that supports building systems such as security, lighting, HVAC and communications in order to supply greater efficiency and higher productivity with increased comfort.
"At CommScope, we advocate and support The Green Grid's efforts to unite and work toward energy-efficient, eco-friendly solutions," says Luc Adriaenssens, senior vice president, Research and Development and Technology, CommScope Enterprise Solutions. "We understand the importance of safeguarding the environment and are committed to making a difference while setting a strong example for others. While we continually focus our efforts on superior product manufacturing, outstanding customer service, employee excellence and company value, environmental stewardship has been and will continue to be a top priority."
The Green Grid seeks to provide industry-wide recommendations on best practices, metrics and technologies that will improve overall data center and business computing energy efficiencies.
