Sustainable Data Center Operations

Sustainability is at the core of our mission to improve our people, process and planet. With our increased impact in the world of digital infrastructure, we strive to lead the industry with a new operational model that encompasses the acceleration of sustainable practices through our services, workforce and company culture. This process requires consensus, collaboration and innovation.

We strive to regularly assess our global impact by:

  • Maintaining our ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) Rating
  • Engaging with stakeholders to share and review initiatives and provide transparency in our sustainability efforts
  • Increasing transparency around the environmental impacts of our operations, including measuring greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reviewing current sustainability initiatives and programs regularly with a focus on innovation and improvement
  • Consistently attaining ISO (International Organization for Standardization) compliance, in turn, helping to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Aligning our goals and initiatives to applicable U.S. and global standards
  • Data center sustainability consulting – understanding environmental risks and rewards to realize benefits for our clients
  • Holding our vendors to our standards
  • Instilling a proper workforce development strategy that provides training on the latest sustainable practices and rewarding outcomes based on measurement and goal setting to define success
  • Educating the Salute team how to engage in sustainability at home, work, and within their communities
  • Consistently auditing our processes to transform clients’ sustainability roadmaps
  • Committing to a Green Purchasing Policy by seeking opportunities to increase our purchase of eco-friendly products – the goal is to reduce product-based GHGs and achieving a net or near zero by 2025.
