General Motors Co.’s new data center in Warren has received a unique environmental award for a facility of its kind.
The Detroit-based automaker Friday announced its Enterprise Data Center on its Warren Technical Center campus earned Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, program.
Fewer than 5 percent of data centers in the U.S. achieve LEED certification, according to the building council. GM’s data hub on its Technical Center campus in the Detroit suburb is the company’s fifth LEED-certified facility and second brownfield project.
Good on you, GM. It’s a nice benefit of their in-sourcing moves.
