Future First: Sustainability at Equinix

Our Vision

At Equinix, we believe in a better future. Our Future First sustainability strategy rallies our people and partners to dream of a better future and then do what it takes to make it happen. The impact today’s actions can have on tomorrow is front of mind in all we do.

Although there are pressing global challenges, growing stakeholder expectations around addressing long-term risks, and increasing awareness of the environmental and social impacts the digital economy has on the world, we know that Equinix, as the world’s digital infrastructure company, can play a positive role in bringing about a sustainable future.

As the world’s largest global data center Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), we have the opportunity to enable our customers and partners to scale their digital transformations sustainably. We are taking leadership role in doing what it takes to protect the planet and tackling climate change across our 240 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers, and within our broader industry.

Our global climate-neutral goal by 2030 and science-based targets will embed decarbonization actions across our business and our supply chain. We will do more to unleash our employees’ potential including investing in and scaling our attention to Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) across our business, including the creation of diverse talent pipelines and pathways for more people to connect with meaningful work. We challenge ourselves to have courageous conversations about how we come together with colleagues and external partners, to build a more just and equitable world where no one is left behind. As a leader in the industry, Equinix is committed to doing what is right to lead the way and maximizing the benefits of technology for all people while minimizing its impact on the planet.
