About CEDaCI

The Data Centre Industry has grown rapidly and generates a large volume of eWaste / WEEE. The current infrastructure for dealing with this waste is underdeveloped and consequently, there is a real and urgent need to address this now. CEDaCI will build a Circular Economy for the Data Centre Industry by bringing together stakeholders from all equipment life cycle stages to turn this waste into a useful resource and support the ongoing rapid growth of the DCI.

CEDaCI Network

This multi-disciplinary network brings together actors and experts from all life cycle stages and sub-sectors directly and indirectly associated with the Data Centre Industry.

Network membership will help you to make the best choices to develop and grow your business sustainability, through access to example case studies, business models, and a Decision Making Tool.
