On the 11th November 2019, BRE Global announced the release of the Data Centre Annex Pilot, to be used alongside the BREEAM New Construction International manual. Developed with feedback from several key stakeholders, the Annex provides data centre buildings with the ability to assess and improve their sustainability and environmental performance against the current BREEAM International New Construction manual for new-build projects outside of the UK.

The annex combines elements of the EN 50600 series of standards for energy efficiency with BREEAM’s own holistic approach to sustainability, covering issues such as water stewardship, building management, materials and ecology. It offers new opportunities for data centres to stand out in the market and was developed with key stakeholders from global critical environment specialist Keysource, Future-tech, Operational Intelligence, Carbon3IT and PTS Consulting.

This session gives an overview of the scope and technical content of the new pilot scheme.


By the end of the session, delegates will learn about

- The scope of the BREEAM Data Centres Annex.

- How it relates to existing BREEAM schemes.

- The key environmental impacts covered by the Annex and how it addresses these.
