We found a similar result when we trialled a similar scheme in Perth some time ago.

For colocation however, I would suggest that by its nature, choosing a sustainable site and caring about your bottom line are one and the same.

That is, for example a site with a PUE of 1.6 would be expected to have lower costs than a legacy site with a PUE of 2.5. It also would be definition be using a lower level of resources to produce the same output.

Obviously many factors relate to this statement, but it would hold true if any commercial realities are ignored.

We started offering carbon credits as a bolt on for all services back in 2008 since then the grand number of customers accepting this tick box.

1 customer
1 service

Seems most care about the bottom line not the planet.
