“When the well is dry, we know the worth of water.”

We know that our natural resources are limited. With water being so critical, how are data center leaders shaping up to support new sustainability requirements? By 2025 half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. However, data center leaders are developing extraordinary methods to ensure water conservation. Some solutions to water scarcity include conserving and valuing water, protecting and restoring freshwater and wetland ecosystems, investing in water infrastructure and technology, and addressing global warming.

In this session, you’ll hear from Alise Porto, VP of Sustainability at Switch, and Patricia Mulroy, Sustainable Strategies Owner, and President. Their discussion will dive into renewable energy, conservation efforts, and what digital infrastructure leaders are doing to support a greener and more water-friendly future. Specifically, this session will cover:

• Water conservation challenges and scarcity
• Cultivating a culture of sustainability
• Understanding the rapid evolution of ESG
• Private and Public water projects in action!
