HCLTech is collaborating with Schneider Electric to develop carbon-efficient solutions for data centers in the Asia pacific (APAC) region, the Noida-based IT services firm said Thursday.“We look forward to collaborating with Schneider Electric to develop sustainability solutions for data centers in APAC,” said Tan Boon Hien, Senior Vice President and Head of APAC Sustainability, HCLTech. “Assessing risk and responsibility, we will integrate HCLTech’s best practices in information technology (IT) with Schneider Electric’s operational technology (OT) to develop solutions that significantly help improve efficiency, productivity and modernization of data centers, reducing the overall carbon footprint.”

Enterprises are investing in sustainability initiatives to improve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings, according to HCLTech.

“We recognize the significant impact of data centers on the environment, particularly in terms of energy consumption and carbon emissions,” said Michel Arres, Vice President of IT Channel and Alliances, International Secure Power Division of Schneider Electric. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with HCLTech to develop carbon-efficient solutions for data centers in the Asia Pacific region.
