Green by Design
At Equinix, our purpose is to connect, power and protect the digital economy. We believe it is important to do this in an environmentally sustainable way. We design, build and operate our data centers with high energy efficiency standards and a long-term goal of using 100% clean and renewable energy for our global platform.
Energy efficiency and environmental sustainability are part of everything we do, whether we’re building new data centers or upgrading existing facilities. We’re continually exploring and implementing new practices to reduce our environmental footprint. And we seek ways to measure ourselves using industry best practices and provide increasing transparency around the impact of our operations.
Many Equinix data centers are certified to meet rigorous environmental and energy management systems standards. All new builds target LEED Silver or equivalent green building certifications.

Our commitment to the environment and our novel use of green technologies has won the recognition of industry and governmental groups.
