Green Practices

When Cray computers impact the planet, it should be in their capacity to solve the world’s most intricate scientific challenges. To that end, Cray Inc. strives to conduct business in an environmentally responsible way. In addition to compliance with environmental regulations and enactment of a policy of "reduce, reuse, recycle" in the product development and manufacturing process, Cray works toward active promotion of "green" employee and supplier practices and clear communication of the company’s environmental policies.

Cray’s products are compliant with the European Union’s Restrictions on the Use of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive and similar worldwide legislation. Working with customers, suppliers and environmental experts, Cray proactively implements systems to ensure future compliance and to prepare for upcoming environmental directives. The company’s product recycling program allows customers to dispose of end-of-life equipment with minimal impact.

The Green Grid

Cray is a member of the The Green Grid, a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in datacenters and business computing ecosystems. The Green Grid is focused on defining meaningful, user-centric models and metrics; developing standards, measurement methods, processes and new technologies to improve datacenter performance against the defined metrics; and promoting the adoption of energy-efficiency standards and energy-efficient processes, measurements and technologies.

Comprised of an interactive body of members who share and improve best practices for datacenter efficiency, The Green Grid's scope includes collaboration with end users and government organizations worldwide to ensure that each organizational goal is aligned with both developers and users of datacenter technology.
