Today, climate change is widely understood to be an extinction-level event, and the digital infrastructure industry has endured attacks from activists and media. While we know much of that criticism is undeserved, we realize the sector bears a great amount of responsibility, not only for addressing its own energy consumption and carbon emissions, but as leaders and an example for sustainability for all industries.
REDUCING THE CARBON FOOTPRINT
"Some people want it to happen, some people wish it would happen, others make it happen."
— MICHAEL JORDAN
