Equinix awarded DPP Committed to Sustainability Mark

Equinix has been awarded the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark, offering a practical tool to assess content and digital media organisations and suppliers against key environmental measures and impacts.

Equinix scored the highest rating on its first response to the DPP’s Committed to Sustainability survey, recognising commitment to continuous improvement in environmental sustainability practices.

“We’re delighted that Equinix has joined an increasing number of companies that are demonstrating their fantastic commitment to building an environmentally sustainable media industry,” said Mark Harrison, the CEO of DPP.

Equinix was assessed against criteria, including its progress against energy use, waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

“As we work to support digital leaders in the CDM industry, we are harnessing the power of technology and interconnection to help create a more sustainable future,” said Matt George, the Director of Segment Marketing for EMEA at Equinix.

In a recent survey, Equinix found that 45% of respondents reported that their customers want them to demonstrate their digital infrastructure is sustainable, while 42% said the sustainability of their own suppliers has a direct impact on their buying decisions.

“At Equinix, we believe we have the responsibility to protect our collective future. This is why we continually seek opportunities with like-minded organisations to advance our global sustainability goals across the areas of energy, renewable energy, and design and operational innovation,” said Jennifer Ruch, the Director of Sustainability and ESG at Equinix.

That’s why enterprises are accelerating digital transformation programs and cloud adoption to reduce their environmental impact and address growing digital demands.

Red Bee Media, a sponsor of the SPP’s sustainability program, selected Platform Equinix to connect with multiple cloud service providers, adapt to change and leverage digital ecosystems to meet sustainability requirements.

“As an industry we need to work together to make sure sustainability is a key priority now, and in the future,which is why Red Bee is a proud sponsor of the DPP Committed to Sustainability program,” said Edward Odevall, the Chief Commercial Officer at Red Bee Media.

The DPP is a not-for-profit company with an international membership that spans the whole media supply chain, covering global technology companies, production companies, digital agencies, online platforms, broadcasters, and more.
