Resource efficient data management:
Why companies need to act now
Data centres already account for 2% of the global electricity consumption, this number could rise up to 30% by 2038. More and more companies realise that they also have to make a contribution to protect the climate. The storage of unstructured and dark data alone unnecessarily wastes huge amounts of energy.
The latest need for action: the EU wide ESG reporting obligation, which applies from 2023 on for all companies with 250 or more employees.
The EU resolution on environmental social governance (ESG) obliges companies to disclose environmental, social and corporate governance information. The intention is to provide investors and customers with transparent insights into the activities of companies and to motivate the market towards sustainability.
Only 53% of companies were able to formally prepare ESG relevant data in the last 2 years. APARAVI supports you in developing a suitable data strategy, automatically cleansing your data and reducing your data estate by up to 40%. The reduction of unnecessary data is the first step towards a better eco-balance.

Heidi explains why sustainable data management means more than just avoiding rising energy costs for storage capacities due to rapid data growth.
