The sustainability opportunity of BT and Equinix’s colocation services

Our jointly developed solutions for colocation and interconnection services can accelerate sustainability efforts by lowering energy usage and greening our customers’ supply chain by decreasing their Scope 3 emissions.

BT provide 100% renewable electricity through their networks and Equinix 100% renewable energy for workloads and applications hosted in their datacentres. Apart from Australia, all Equinix data centres that BT uses are covered with 100% renewable energy.

BT has pledged to be a net-zero emissions business by 2030. We’ve committed to helping our customers save 60mtCO2e and become a circular business by 2030. We’re one of the first companies to adopt science-based targets and use 100% renewable electricity worldwide. We're delighted Equinix, with whom we deliver cloud solutions to multinational customers, has announced ambitious targets too. Working together, we will achieve more.”
