Our planet is facing critical challenges such as climate change, natural disasters and other environmental risks. Organizations, people and communities are coming together and connecting with purpose, collectively accomplishing more than what just one company can do. We are committed to protecting our environment and reaching aggressive targets for renewable energy sourcing.
At Equinix, operating responsibly has always been a key part of everything we do. We strive to be good stewards of the environment and all the resources we consume, while also helping our customers operate more sustainably. After all, what we do in our data centers directly impacts our customers’ abilities to maintain green digital supply chains.
“With REBA, we are bringing the buying power of large energy consumers together to change markets. Equinix was one of our earliest members and the first in their industry to publicly commit to a 100% renewable energy goal. Equinix has gone beyond their own footprint to serve as true leaders in the clean energy buyer community, and their expertise is helping us move the needle to a cleaner, more affordable, zero-carbon energy future.”
– Miranda Ballentine, REBA CEO April 2019
In April of 2015, Equinix set a long-term goal to use 100% clean and renewable energy for our global data center platform. Since 2015, we’ve made significant progress toward our goal.
At Equinix we are committed to the responsible management of all resources. Energy efficiency and environmental sustainability are part of everything we do, whether we’re building new data centers or upgrading existing facilities.
