Our Corporate Sustainability Program was designed to deliver meaningful and measurable progress against sustainability goals that positively impact our customers, partners, investors and employees. We seek to be good stewards of the environment and the resources we consume. As leaders in data centre sustainability, we are leading by example and taking steps to minimise our carbon footprint and reduce our energy consumption. We also value collaboration and transparency in all of our efforts.
We continuously look for innovative ways to deploy energy-saving technologies and on-site generation solutions.
Reduce power consumption and increase cooling capacity through active airflow management using intelligent, distributed sensors and innovative control policies
Reduce power consumption for cooling, while maintaining a safe operating temperature for computing equipment
Lowers energy consumption and enables more efficient cooling by using physical barriers to reduce the mixing of cold air in data center supply aisles with the hot air in exhaust aisles
Utilise motion-activated controls and/or LEDs to reduce energy consumption and ambient heat from operating lights
Place electricity in close proximity to our energy consumption while allowing maximum efficiency and increased resiliency; Equinix has 38 MW of fuel cells deployed in the U.S.
Improve our design and operational PUEs by raising the chilled water temperature to save energy
Equinix data centres are certified to meet rigorous environmental and energy management systems standards. All new builds target LEED Silver or equivalent green building certifications. We join forces with partners across industries and share best practices. As a result, we have been recognised by a variety of organisations for our leadership in operating sustainably.
