How we do sustainability:

We use green building certifications to show that our data center developments are environmentally responsible and minimize negative impacts. Our goal is to certify all new developments and renovations according to recognized green building standards. 

Energy-efficient data centers reduce environmental impact and lower operating costs. We invest in our facilities to improve efficiency, reduce resource consumption, and pass savings onto our customers. 

We help customers meet their clean energy objectives by working with utility companies, developers, and producers to power our data centers with renewable resources. The U.S. EPA has recognized our efforts on this front, listing us as one of the top 100 largest buyers of renewable energy. 

Since 2015, we’ve used green bonds to ensure that sustainability is integral to our growth. Today, we are the leading insurer of green bonds in the industry. Our efforts have earned us an 8th place ranking on the U.S. EPA’s Top 30 Tech & Telecom List and 21st on their National Top 100 List.
