FedEx Unveils Green Data Center

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) today celebrated the grand opening of its first environmentally sustainable (“green”) data center, located adjacent to the FedEx Rocky Mountain Tech Center in Colorado Springs, CO. Based on the application of a number of green design standards, the Enterprise Data Center–West (EDC-W) can be counted among the most energy efficient data centers in the U.S.

Phase 1 of the construction of the 140,000 square foot building began in 2006 and was completed in 2008. Phase 2 upgraded the existing data center infrastructure and added an additional 26,000 square feet. Recently, FedEx applied for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification of the EDC-W. LEED certification is the benchmark for buildings that are designed, constructed and operated sustainably.

“The EDC-W represents a major milestone in our strategy to leverage advanced technologies for the benefit of our customers and to position FedEx for future growth,” says Kevin M. Humphries, senior vice president of Information Technology for FedEx Services. “We now have a technology model that, going forward, will improve productivity, enhance reliability and help reduce our impact on the environment.”
