Labrador Technology

Growing Green – from our office to your
green data center.

Labrador: committed to green IT.

When it comes to green policy, Labrador practices what it preaches. As a proud member of the New York Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, we’re committed to being a part of the solution by cutting office and project-related waste while conserving energy. We put our commitment into practice every morning when we take public transport to work, throughout the day as we recycle, and into the future as we set clients up with smart solutions that control and reduce power consumption in green data centers and offices.

A visit to our midtown Manhattan headquarters demonstrates green best practices in action:

  • Moving services into the Cloud reduces our equipment footprint and our power and cooling needs.
  • Of course we re-use and recycle, and if it doesn’t affect our speed or leading technological edge, we use refurbished products.
  • Internal documents are created and stored electronically, and when we do need to print, we do it double-sided on 100% recycled paper.
  • Our use of interactive whiteboards and other collaboration tools to problem-solve further reduces our reliance on paper.

We’ll work on your carbon footprint, too.

Beyond the environmental picture of our corporate culture and office are the green solutions Labrador brings its clients. Whether you want to overhaul your entire facility, commit to a green data center or just start the process of reducing consumption and cutting energy costs, Labrador helps clients figure out the most efficient path to take towards green. We define the measurements for success along the way, and see it through to completion.

Our staff includes professionals credentialed with green building industry certifications, LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional), so that your projects applying for LEED status will be designed and executed with the latest sustainable, cost-efficient, and energy-saving solutions.

Labrador Technology also volunteers representation on the newly formed STEP (Sustainable Technology Environments ProgramSM). Formed to bring sustainability to the process of planning, designing, integrating and operating technology systems, as well as reducing long-term environmental impact from technology deployment, STEP joins the list of sustainable rating systems, green building ratings systems and sustainable codes and standards.

What’s good for Green can also be good for business.

  • Data center consolidation reduces energy and cost by reducing power, cooling, and IT resources.
  • Passive and active thermal management solutions in green data centers increase energy efficiency by reducing CRAC unit cooling power.
  • Targeting and reducing duplicate IT assets lowers both the real estate and the power footprint, while also streamlining processes and systems.
  • Adaptive reuse and refresh of IT assets and infrastructure contributes to a lower corporate carbon footprint.
