    Apple Data Centers = Green more and more

    ZDNet covers Apple's disclosing more details of its Green Data Center.

    Apple discloses more details on green data center plan

    By  | May 21, 2012, 9:58am PDT

    The reporter makes the observation others have that Apple has been working on its green data center plans longer than Greenpeace has been putting pressure on Apple.

    An aggressive public relations campaign by Greenpeace may have forced Apple to disclose this earlier than originally planned, but it is clear that this initiative has been in the works for some time. Seriously, there is so much involved in planning this sort of thing, that is definitely was not in reaction to Greenpeace.

    The article continues to cover the steps that Apple is taking to be greener than others.

    As the author covers the dynamics between greenpeace and Apple, the author mentions the efforts Apple is taking to disclose its energy use to the North Carolina Renewable Energy Tracking System.

    Oh by the way if you haven't heard Apple's Maiden Data Center is LEED Platinum.

    The facility has earned the coveted LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. We know of no other data center of comparable size that has achieved this level of LEED certification.
