Jones Lang LaSalle Partners with BNY Mellon to Win ENERGY STAR® Award for Data Center

Bank’s Pennsylvania data center among the first to receive distinguished recognition


New York and Pittsburgh, August  6, 2010 — BNY Mellon has received the 2010 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® Award for its Northpointe data center in Pittsburgh. A team of professionals from BNY Mellon, Jones Lang LaSalle, H.F. Lenz and Mechanical Operations Company, Inc., worked collaboratively to reach ENERGY STAR’s criteria on energy efficiency at the 71,000 square-foot data center.

Northpointe is currently among the first data centers listed in the EPA’s entire 11,000-plus registry of commercial properties to meet the stringent energy-efficiency specifications designed to promote superior energy use and performance, and prevent greenhouse gas emissions.

“The team focused on utility improvements and successfully implemented a variety of solutions so that the center’s critical systems such as the power and cooling supply were in synch with the workload,” said X Jones Lang LaSalle. “At Jones Lang LaSalle we continually seek ways to make the properties we serve more energy-efficient.  Our partnership with ENERGY STAR is key to our ability to measure performance and identify strategies for improvement.”

An ENERGY STAR Partner since 1998, Jones Lang LaSalle was first named Partner of the Year in 2007, and has continually enhanced its service platform and internal practices to earn the award again in 2010.
