In January the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ruled that public companies must disclose to investors the risks they face related to climate change. The ruling raises a key question: does your company have enough data about its operations to know what kind of risk it might face from environmental legislation?
John Stanley from the Uptime Institute has a post at the N Plus One  blog that provides a closer look at the SEC ruling and what it may mean for data centers. “The SEC ruling does not create new rules or modify existing ones – it merely provides interpretive guidance regarding the risk disclosure rules already on the books,” John notes, adding that the ruling “provides businesses – including those in the IT and data center industries – yet another reason to keep energy use and environmental performance on their radar at the highest levels of management.”
