ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, today announced that two of the company’s data centers have earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) ENERGY STAR certification, which signifies that the buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. The data centers are located in Georgia and South Dakota.
"We’re pleased to have earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts,” said Greg Levine, SVP infrastructure and operations for ADP. "It validates our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint while also lowering our energy costs.”
Commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. ADP improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to its buildings.
EPA’s ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification. Commercial buildings that can earn the ENERGY STAR include offices, bank branches, data centers, financial centers, retail stores, courthouses, hospitals, hotels, K-12 schools, medical offices, supermarkets, dormitories, houses of worship, and warehouses.
