When our founders started Equinix, they envisioned a place where the information-driven world could grow and thrive. As we look to the future, we remain dedicated to the advancement of the information-driven world. As part of this dedication, we will:
We constantly evaluate the energy efficiency of our data centers, and we’re quick to adopt proven energy-saving technologies or techniques on a global scale. For instance, systems that reduce power use by actively monitoring air flow are becoming standard technologies in our data centers. So are controls that optimize cold aisle temperature, chiller efficiency, chilled water flow and modern lighting systems. These and other green operational practices have helped us avoid using about 10,000 kilowatts annually—enough to power more than 8,000 U.S. homes for a year. To help us conserve even more energy in the coming years, we’ve set a target of 1.45 or lower for our design average power usage effectiveness (PUE), putting our new data centers on an aggressive path for efficiency improvement.
At Equinix, being “green” is just part of being operationally lean. We’re always looking for new ways to reduce energy and water use in our data centers, and many of our facilities have earned green certifications. We’ve also received the following awards in recognition of our environmentally sustainable business practices:
2013 EU Code of Conduct Energy Efficiency Award
Awarded to our AM3 IBX for adopting innovative technologies to improve data center energy efficiency and reduce energy consumption
2012 DataCenterDynamics Award: Green Data Center
Awarded for innovative cooling design in our AM3 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Amsterdam
2014 Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award
Awarded for leading the industry in the identification and implementation of green initiatives and meeting strict energy efficiency requirements in all leading markets in the Asia-Pacific region

We embrace our responsibility for equal opportunity in employment by demonstrating respect for each employee's unique background and capabilities.
I have been working at Equinix full-time (Less than a year)
I started as an HR intern and I really enjoyed that experience because I had the autonomy and empowerment to work cross functionally and explore new projects. There was a number of social and development events to attend so our class of about 70 interns bonded well. My senior year, I received a job offer to start after I completed my undergrad degree. I was placed in a role where I've been able to make high impact in the HR Comms team as we are building innovative communications programs. The culture and size of Equinix allows me to jump in on this important work as we begin to scale and focus on employee experience. Everyone at the company is willing to help you grow and learn and I’ve been able to develop my skills immensely.
Although Equinix is a tech company in Silicon Valley there aren’t amenities like free meals (just breakfast) or large scale events to get to know other employees.
Advice to Management
Continue to invest in the intern/new-to-career programs and maintain the positive and personable employee culture.
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Equinix (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)).
Submitted CV, received an Email for my first Interview that was conducted online as a video conference, which was followed by a series of similar interviews with different people in a period of about a month. The process was smooth.
I gave a figure and they simply offered that.
