Barclays says it will reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with a new major data centre in Gloucester, U.K.

So it should as well. Greenbang thinks it’s time to start reporting the companies that aren’t making eco-progress rather than those that are – and then making a big song and dance about it.

The company has brought in HP’s Dynamic Smart Cooling to save up to 13.4% of total energy used for its data centre. These energy saving measures will significantly reduce its carbon footprint by approx 7470 tonnes of CO2 per year, it claims.
