Racks Central has received a Green Mark Platinum certification from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Infocomm Development Authority (IDA). This was achieved under the “existing data center” category, a first for a data center in Singapore. The BCA-IDA Green Mark for Data Centres is a green building rating system created specifically for data centers and must be renewed every three years. It is designed to give recognition to data centers that adopt energy efficient designs, operations, and management.
A Green Mark Rating is awarded based on a Green Mark Score that is calculated based on a pre-set list of attributes. A score of above 50 out of 100 is required to qualify for the lowest “Certified” ranking. The ranking ranges from the basic Green Mark Certified, to the Green Mark Gold, Green Mark Gold Plus, and the Green Mark Platinum. The Green Mark Platinum is the highest possible ranking and requires data centers to obtain a score of over 90.
This Platinum certification verifies the energy efficient design and environmental performance of our brown field Singapore data center.
