Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG)
These three central factors are increasingly being used to measure the sustainability and societal impact of a company’s data center investment. At Digital Crossroad we are committed to providing our customers, employees, partners and communities with economic and environmental advantages that reduce the cost and carbon footprint of our data centers.
Traditional data centers typically waste an enormous amount of energy. According to a 2020 report from the Uptime Institute, the average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) ratio for a data center is 1.58. That means a high percentage (.58) of the energy consumed by the data center is wasted. We must do better. At Digital Crossroad, we design, build and operate our data centers to reduce environmental impact. From innovative cooling technologies to heat reclamation, we are doing our part to be better stewards of the environment.
Digital Crossroad believes in the power of difference. Inclusion and workforce diversity provides a broader pool of talent that facilitates innovation and agility. Our team is comprised of a diverse mix of men and women from both civilian and military backgrounds.
We work closely with our supply chain partners to ensure the health and welfare of our employees and local communities, including plant and animal ecosystems.
Corporate Governance Initiatives
Digital Crossroad has organized the management structure of the company and implemented a system of internal procedures and controls to maintain a proper balance of power. While we are still a young and growing organization, we strive to become recognized as a “Best Places to Work” company. We believe in pay equity for employees of all genders and have included ESG targets in our executive compensation program to demonstrate our overall commitment to sustainability.
