Vertiv Adopts Microgrid and RE in US, EMEA
Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has begun installation of an on-site solar field at its Delaware, Ohio facility to support a microgrid demonstration initiative.
In Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), several Vertiv factories have purchased renewable energy for its operations. Vertiv’s E+I Engineering Burnfoot location in Ireland installed a system that recycles and reuses all process water in manufacturing, reducing the overall water consumption of the site.
The company also expanded its product portfolio and the product pipeline with new and upgraded offerings with energy- and water-efficiency attributes.
Details were provided in its second annual report on the company’s ESG efforts, highlighting initiatives across several key areas.
“We have made steady advancement in our commitment to be a responsible global and corporate citizen,” said Giordano Albertazzi, Vertiv CEO, in a statement. “We are creating reliable, water- and energy-efficient products and systems that support the environmental objectives of our customers, while improving our own policies and impact related to our operations, our people, our communities, and our supply chain. We are proud to share our work on these fronts with the world.”
This year’s ESG report also introduces reporting aligned to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), a leading framework for communicating the management of climate risks and opportunities and how these impact Vertiv’s business strategy.
