SUSTAINABILITY

Despite existing in a traditionally ‘high energy consumption’ industry, Pulse DC recognises the importance of minimising our environmental footprint. We understand that it is our responsibility to optimise the environmental sustainability of operations, for the betterment of our planet, our customers, future generations and business.

Pulse DC’s values and vision for sustainability has been evident since the original concept phase – with the design of our facility, which takes advantage of the cooler climate conditions of the Toowoomba region and minimises our environmental footprint, all the while maintaining exceptional performance and resilient services. Furthermore, Pulse DC’s sustainability values are engrained in our daily operations and future planning, supporting our vision of a green and sustainable future.

The continued increase of the cost of power has caused it to become one of the highest operational expenditures affecting businesses. The evaluation of power costs and its reliability for larger business is driving significant shifts and, in some cases, businesses are selecting specific locations or even relocating to achieve a more certain, predictable and competitive outcome for their operations.

Surrounding Pulse DC, the FKG Group’s proposed 760ha AATLIS precinct will comprise of four sub-precincts, including Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Agri-food and Energy. The Energy Precinct will provide low cost energy solutions through the development of an on-site microgrid, leveraging solar and gas energy generation – and delivering reliable, significantly more affordable and efficient renewable power options, from which Pulse DC and its clients will directly benefit.

Further reinforcing Pulse DC’s sustainability values, our Environmental Management Systems are accredited to AS/NZS ISO 14001:2015 standards and our Energy Management Systems are accredited to AS/NZS ISO 50001:2018 standards.

Additionally, Pulse DC is committed to social sustainability and our local economy. Proudly 100% Australian owned and operated, Pulse DC is proudly part of the local Toowoomba business community and also beyond to the industries and sectors in which we operate.
