Ocient Adds Carbon Offsets, Green Data Centers

Ocient, a hyperscale data analytics solutions company, announced its continued commitment to digital sustainability and carbon neutrality with carbon offsets and green data centers.

The company also plans to minimize its carbon footprint by purchasing offsets for the carbon emissions generated by the company to make all of Ocient’s operations, including 100% of OcientCloud deployments and all of its data center operations are carbon neutral.

Ocient is working with Terrapass, a carbon offset and renewable energy solutions company. The carbon offsets facilitated by Terrapass support the following projects:

  • Landfill gas capture projects that turn garbage into power by capturing the methane released by organic waste as it breaks down.
  • Renewable energy projects that generate clean electricity from renewable sources to displace traditional fossil-fueled energy sources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Capturing carbon dioxide (C02) in the trunks, leaves, branches, and roots of trees, to improve forest management to mitigate carbon.

“Ocient is committed to leading the industry by example, driving digital sustainability in an energy-intensive field and serving as a carbon-neutral component of the digital supply chain,” said Chris Gladwin, co-founder and CEO of Ocient in a statement. “Ocient’s ability to reduce and balance carbon emissions while analyzing massive, compute-intensive datasets demonstrates it’s possible to fuel innovation responsibly.”
