When you sign a deal with a data center partner

You may inadvertently double your company’s carbon footprint – or cut it in half. You can associate yourself with an offshore partner raising the standards of living in a remote place, or one getting caught in governance scandals.

Bringing the Best Resources to Bear

RampRate has been working on reducing data center emissions through increasing visibility for responsible operators since 2007 to bring more breadth to the picture and cover governance, employee treatment and other forms of alignment with best practices, we have partnered with CSRHub, which aggregates more than 150 different data sources to rank more than 5,000 providers on their performance.

We have also integrated other data sources as appropriate

Including Greenpeace’s influential “How Clean is Your Cloud” report. If you’re a RampRate customer using our HyperSource.IT! platform to buy IT services, all you have to do is add the right weights to the new Industry and Community Fit of your scorecard – we will do the rest and incorporate social responsibility (CSR) metrics into the final decision.

If you’re interested in a more detailed breakdown

Or want to see how your own scores are shaped by CSR, RampRate, and CSRHub we also offer standard and custom reports to drive more precise measurement and improvement programs. Simply contact your client engagement manager or info@ramprate.com for more details.
