LONDON -- July 17, 2012

Telehouse, the leading provider of global data centres and managed ICT
services, has achieved the Carbon Trust Standard (CTS) accreditation for its
three French-based data centre facilities; Telehouse Paris Voltaire, Telehouse
Paris Jeûneurs and Telehouse Magny-Les-Hameaux.

The announcement builds on the successful certification of its four London
data centres last year and reinforces Telehouse’s commitment to cutting its
carbon footprint across its global operations.

According to market research firm Pike Research the data centre industry
currently accounts for 1.5 per cent of the world’s energy consumption, with
this figure expected to double by 2020. As a result of this European
enterprises are actively being driven to achieve greater levels of energy
efficiency through emerging legislative programs and standards. One such
standard is the CTS.

The CTS is a rigorous, independent assessment, which certifies that an
organisation has measured, managed and reduced their carbon emissions across
its own operations, and are committed to reducing it year-on-year.

Telehouse’s two London sites were originally CTS certified in February 2011
after dramatically improving carbon efficiency across the business by 12 per
cent, relative to turnover. The latest achievement demonstrates Telehouse’s
continual drive to improve carbon efficiency across its entire European
operation.

According to Olivier Caron, Operations Director from Telehouse Paris, “The
certification provides the proof that we as an organisation are taking action
to reduce our carbon footprint. Securing the CTS provides us with a platform
and benchmark to ensure the business is reviewing its energy efficiency
activities on a continuous basis. In turn, this can lead to huge benefits to
our customers hosted across all our London and Paris data centres including
cost savings. As a result Telehouse is now one of the first organisations to
achieve the CTS certification on an international level.”
