Microsoft datacenter in Sweden
The high energy consumption of data centres is an area that has a significant climate impact. That’s why we’re particularly proud and pleased that Microsoft has opened the doors to its Swedish data centre, which is powered by 100% renewable energy and zero waste facilities. Soon Norteam will move customers and future customers’ data to the Swedish data centre. This will primarily affect those working in Microsoft Azure and Office 365. Read more about Microsoft’s Swedish data center region here.

In 2021, Norteam signed the Microsoft Partner Pledge. Together, we will ensure that we drive issues that affect both businesses and us as citizens for a sustainable society. Read more about Microsoft’s work on sustainability with its partners here.

A sustainable workplace

The building is owned by Svenska Hus, which is continuously working to improve the energy efficiency of its premises in order to reduce the environmental impact.

Together with the company Office Recycling, we make sure that everything we throw away is 100% recycled. At Norteam’s offices, we sort our waste and then Office Recycling picks up our waste and rubbish using fossil-free transport. Our waste is both sorted and recycled. Read more about their work here.
