The Data News Awards, which will be announced during the Award Ceremony on Thursday May 25th, are an annual recognition of the leading organisations in the Belgian ICT industry. LCL has been nominated and awarded several times in the past. This year, for the first time, we are nominated in no less than 4 different categories:
We are especially proud of this last category. LCL has made numerous contributions to a more sustainable ICT environment. This year alone, we will add 1300 solar panels to the 2.000 units we have running already in LCL Wallonia One. We thus reduce the need for external energy supply with 10%. This expansion is part of our overall sustainability strategy. We have committed to becoming CO2-neutral by 2030 for datacenters, and have signed the European Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact to officialize this pledge.
We are convinced that we deserve this Award of Most Sustainable ICT Company of the Year. Do you agree? Do not hesitate to vote for us on the Data News Awards page. And you can vote for us (and others) in the other categories while you’re at it. Thanks in advance!

It goes without saying that we will continue to expand our workforce to support our growth”, according to Laurens
The data center is at the heart of the digital economy and only the most advanced and modern data centers can offer an answer to the ever accelerating needs of technological innovations. As an infrastructure partner, they must also ensure that companies can switch quickly and scale up where necessary in order to bring new services to the market.
