Working with EkkoSense not only helps data centre operations teams to secure quantifiable carbon savings, but the latest 8.0 release also includes an embedded ESG reporting capability. Channel partners can use this to help customers easily deliver the ESG and sustainability reports that are now required across Europe,” she added.
