Globe Data Center gets industry "green" stamp for environment management system

Globe Data Center Certification

After a string of significant industry-standard accreditations in 2013, Globe continues its streak of receiving formal recognitions from global certifying bodies, this time with an ISO 14001:2004 for "Environmental Management System (EMS)" for its flagship data center. More details after the jump.

The certification was recently conferred to the telco's data facility as its services were deemed to fulfill requirements adherent to environmental compliance. These factors are on top of Quality, IT Service Management, Information Security and Business Continuity standards that will eventually deliver the widest possible acceptance in the IT sector.

"The ISO-EMS certification ensures that any and all interfaces between the Globe Data Center and the environment are closely controlled in a manner that minimizes any untoward environmental impact," affirmed newly-installed Globe Business Vice President for IT-Enabled Services Group (IG) Rey Lugtu.

Meanwhile, Globe Business Senior Vice President for Enterprise Segments Group (EG) Nikko Acosta concurred that, "as a world-class, technologically-advanced and highly secure facility, clients of the Globe Data Center are assured that our services are globally compliant. The recent EMS, ISO 14001:2004 accreditation validates our commitment to expand and deliver solutions to our customers that highly support a greener IT ecosystem."

The manifold features of the ISO-EMS cited the Globe Data Center of being capable of: (a) promoting procedures that have been made in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner; (b) requiring proactive management of any design and operational environmental risks; (c) supporting customers to achieve lasting environmental and economic goals; (d) further increasing value-added corporate image; (e) enhancing efficient waste management reduction, energy and material savings, and encouraging cost distribution reduction; and (f) advocating green initiatives for the industry.

All Globe Business Data Centers carry three important global certifications and accreditations within the past five years: ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System, ISO 27001:2005 for Information Security Management System and BS 25999:2007 for Business Continuity Management System, which enhances any company's business continuity program, all of which strengthen the Globe Data Centers' assurance to customers that their service requirements will be fulfilled.

Meanwhile, the flagship Data Center is likewise distinguished with the ISO 20000-1:2011 certification for IT Service Management System, assuring customers that all of the company's policies, processes and procedures are compliant to requirements of ISO 20000, the standard for an IT Service Management System, in which the company completed its bid in early 2013.

Not long after, Globe Business made it two-in-a-row by achieving ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System for its Performance Management Center and ISO 20000:1 on IT Service Management for its Data Centers, making the industry innovation thought-leader's business practices aligned with international standards as it puts premium on commitments ensuring customer satisfaction, continuous improvement as well as implementing effective and globally-accepted processes, policies and procedures.
