EdgeConneX strong focus on sustainability is evidenced in meaningful initiatives across our global footprint. One recent achievement is the EcoVadis Silver Certification, a prestigious recognition that signifies our commitment to sustainability and responsible business practices – a designation for the top 25% of businesses globally and a tier higher than our EcoVadis Bronze Certification achieved last year.
The EcoVadis Silver Certification is more than just recognition; it represents a tangible contribution to building a sustainable future. By undergoing a rigorous assessment process, EdgeConneX showcased our dedication to reducing carbon emissions, conserving natural resources, and promoting transparency throughout our operations. This commitment extends beyond internal practices to encompass the entire supply chain, encouraging our suppliers and partners to adopt sustainable practices. The EcoVadis Silver rating also affirms EdgeConneX advanced comprehensive Greenhouse Gas (GHG) management system, reporting in line with global standards, and certification by third-party data verification.

It reflects our dedication to environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and ethical business conduct. The EcoVadis Silver Certification motivates us to continue pushing the boundaries of sustainability within our organization and within the industry.” – Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing and Product Officer
