Green is the Warmest Color

Recently, Akamai announced the company's plans to expand its sustainability initiatives through an innovative renewable energy procurement strategy. Unlike many of its peers in the tech industry, Akamai does not operate its own data centers.

Will a Cost on Carbon Darken our Cloud?

A cost on carbon is looming in the U.S. as urgency to address climate change intensifies.  What are the implications of this for our energy-hungry Cloud industry?   California implemented a cap and trade program in 2012 introducing a market-based price tag on carbon pollution(1), currently at $13 per ton.  A bill in the U.S. Senate, the Climate Protection Act, would establish a fee on manufacturers, producers and importers of carbon-emitting substances.
