LONDON, March 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- BIS Ltd has been recognised by the City of London under its Clean City Awards Scheme for 2009.
We are delighted to have received this award as it acknowledges BIS' ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint said Raj Bosamia, Commercial Director at BIS Ltd. This award relates to our achievements in waste management, waste minimisation, reuse and recycling and whilst this is only one small area addressed by our Green Policy, it is a vitally important component, he continued.
Steve Presland, City of London's Highway Cleansing Services Director commented The City of London offers a range of waste and recycling services and it's great to see businesses taking advantage of these. It's companies like BIS that help to keep the City a clean and pleasant environment in which to live, work and visit.
David Pyemont, Chairman of BIS Ltd As the owner and operator of a suite of data centres in London we are exceedingly focussed on maximising green polices across the board. Clearly, a data centre requires extensive power and cooling which on the surface would appear to be 'anti-green'. However, by implementing the most efficient solutions currently available and using ECA approved equipment, our data centres' efficiency ratios are amongst the best in the industry. And when compared against a large number of companies running individual, often inefficient, facilities a data centre with efficient and effective power management can actually provide a lower carbon footprint overall he continued.
