QTS to Invest $10M in "Green" Improvements - top government contractors - best government contracting eventQuality Technology Services recently announced its plans to invest $10 million in energy efficiency measures over several years.

This past summer, QTS partook in the Environmental Defense Fund“™s climate corps program, a fellowship program designed to help companies save money via “green” technology and reduce their carbon footprint.

Through the program, QTS was able to identify more than $4 million in potential annual energy efficiency costs and savings at their Atlanta Metro facility.

After changes were implemented, the facility, which is the world’s second largest data center,  was awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold Certification. LEED was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, and is an internationally-recognized green building certification system that provides the framework for business owners and operators to identify and implement practical and measurable “green building design.”

“Achieving LEED Gold in a large, multi-tenant environment is extremely challenging, and everybody at QTS is justifiably proud of this achievement,“ said Brian Johnston, chief technology officer of QTS. “As we implement our EDF fellow’s recommendations through a $10 million multi-year investment, we strive to be not only good stewards of resources, but pass cost savings through to our customers who have an interest in going green.“
