Equinix joins the American Business Act on Climate Pledge

Outlines plan to demonstrate commitment to reducing company impact on global climate change.

Equinix, has joined the American Business Act on Climate Pledge, joining more than 140 companies from across the American economy that are standing with the Obama Administration to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to climate action and to voice support for a strong outcome to this week’s COP21 Paris climate negotiations.
Launched earlier this year, the American Act on Climate Pledge is a commitment from hundreds of private companies, local governments, and foundations who have stepped up to increase energy efficiency, boost low-carbon investing, and make solar energy more accessible. Accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy will produce multiple benefits with regard to sustainable economic growth, public health, resilience to natural disasters, and the health of the global environment.
