SINGAPORE and NOIDA, India, July 19, 2023 — HCLTech, a leading global technology company, has announced its collaboration with Schneider Electric, a leader in digital transformation of energy management and industrial automation, to develop carbon-efficient solutions for data centers in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
“With the growth of the digital economy, it is important that enterprises responsibly manage their data center energy consumption. We look forward to collaborating with Schneider Electric to develop sustainability solutions for data centers in APAC,” said Tan Boon Hien, Senior Vice President and Head of APAC Sustainability, HCLTech. “Assessing risk and responsibility, we will integrate HCLTech’s best practices in information technology (IT) with Schneider Electric’s operational technology (OT) to develop solutions that significantly help improve efficiency, productivity and modernization of data centers, reducing the overall carbon footprint.”
