Diversity and inclusion

Working together to support our customers

At Equinix, we want our talented and dedicated workforce to bring their authentic selves to work each day, to be able to say, “I’m safe, I belong and I matter.”

Our CEO and leadership team are committed to helping Equinix gain more diversity of thought, giving equal opportunities to all our talented employees and continuing to deliver for our customers. Equinix employee networks such as BlackConnect, GenteConnect, PrideConnect and interAsianConnect help us affirm our identities, connect with colleagues, learn about others’ experiences and work to become allies.

Together we create solutions to meet our customers’ business challenges. We make a difference in our communities, and we build teams whose members enjoy each other, trust one another and are proud of where they work. Our core values of openness, honesty, service, courage and growth help ensure that we work with integrity and put the customer at the center of everything we do.


Sustainably connected across one planet

As innovation accelerates, so does the demand for resources to fuel our evolving digital world. We take seriously our responsibility to build sustainability into our business, and we actively work to face the world’s most important environmental challenges.

To combat global warming, we are decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels. Since 2011, our more than $129 million in energy efficiency investments have avoided roughly 430,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (mtCO2e). And in 2019, over 90% of our global data center energy consumption used 100% clean and renewable energy.

As we build industry, innovation and infrastructure for a more sustainable digital world, we are committed to forging a diverse, inclusive workforce and promoting long-term economic growth for our investors, customers, communities and employees.
