We have a responsibility to our employees, investors, customers and the community at large to operate ethically and with integrity and that is why our commitment to equal opportunities and inclusion, robust governance and independent sustainability assessments help to improve our performance and drive positive impact.
The responsibility for protecting our world is up to all of us; governments, businesses and individuals. We recognise that, which is why here at Expereo we are committed to acting now for our future.
As we look to accelerate our actions we have a number of initiatives in place. We have already taken significant steps to decarbonize our operations – over 86% of the data centers we use are green, utilizing the latest technology to provide renewable energy.
We are fully committed to reducing our carbon footprint further. Expereo participates in two major offsetting initiatives with Closing the Loop and Climate Neutral Group. All business travel is similarly neutralized. Our waste reduction efforts include a switch to paperless operations and an effective recycling and refurbishment program to eliminate electronic waste.
“Equinix is proud to accompany Expereo in the journey to greener global connectivity, with over 90% of our Data Centers energy consumption today covered by renewable sources”.
We also receive great feedback from our employees and customers alike from our partnership with Tree Nation. Introduced at the start of 2023, we recognize and value engagement across the business and have already planted over 1,300 trees offsetting over 450 tons of CO₂.
All of these efforts have helped us earn bronze-level certification with Ecovadis, the independent sustainability assessor. This puts us in the top half of our industry, but we’re still working hard to achieve silver – and beyond.
Honesty and integrity are a universal standard, valued by every culture across the world. Our diverse workforce is drawn from 48 different nationalities, united by an established code of conduct to ensure all operations uphold these values.
We celebrate equal opportunity and inclusion in all forms, believing that a diverse workforce allows us to better meet the needs of our customers and encourage new creativity.
Investing in our people and employee engagement is a prime focus. We design and deploy training paths that provide our people with the professional skills and tools they really need and want. We actively encourage teams to take part in CSR challenges and initiatives, such as for our annual environment day event, and health week initiatives. And we use employee advocacy tools, such as Sociabble – to keep the whole company connected and in the know.
Our stance is unequivocal – honesty, transparency, and integrity are the standards by which we operate, with a zero tolerance policy for corruption. All our supplier relationships are already governed by a clear code of conduct to maintain regulatory and ethical boundaries – and 100% of our supplier contracts contain a CSR clause.
As a connectivity business, we are very conscious of the importance of global standards for information security management. This is why we are proud to be ISO 27001 certified.
Expereo’s ESG policies are constantly updated to track our progress, manage risks, and help keep on top of any changes to corporate social responsibility, modern slavery, anti-bribery, and anti-corruption legislation. What is more, all our employees are trained on cybersecurity, data protection, and Code of Ethics.
