Environment and sustainability 

Telecity Group recognises it must ensure its use of energy is as efficient as possible, both for itself and its customers. It has improved the environmental efficiency of its data centre portfolio with an energy management programme based around building a detailed understanding of the factors driving energy consumption. This has enabled Telecity Group to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard in the UK, roll out the EU’s code of conduct for data centres’ best practices and achieve ISO14001 accreditation across all its data centres.


The company maintains a strong focus on investment and innovation both in the technology it uses and the design of its buildings. For new data centres the focus is on design innovation, to limit their impact on the environment. The group’s Condorcet facility in Paris is the first data centre in Europe to have an arboretum included in its design.


Challenge, innovate and grow with Europe’s leading provider of premium carrier-neutral data centres. You can expect to work in a dynamic and rewarding environment which enables you to fulfil your potential. We understand that the commitment, dedication and well-being of our staff are crucial for the continuing success of our business.
