A Sustainable Approach
Equinix has set a goal to reach 100% clean and renewable energy by 2030. 

We were the first in the data centre industry to commit to becoming climate-neutral, aligned to an approved short-term science-based target for emissions reduction across global operations and our supply chain.  Our Future First strategy aligns our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives to the material issues that impact our stakeholders, business and the world around us.
