As demand for data and premiums on energy have grown, sustainability and energy efficiency have become the watchwords for the data center industry. Several new products from 3M that help make data centers more sustainable will be featured at the upcoming Data Center World, April 28-May 2 in Las Vegas, booth 1223.

Today, we're building on decades of practices that support economic, social, and environmental sustainability.”
