Our Path to a Resilient and Responsive Business.

Iron Mountain’s corporate responsibility goals guide our journey to securing a more sustainable future, addressing the material issues most important to our stakeholders and conducting our business in a way that ensures a prosperous future for all.

We set 20 ambitious public ESG goals in 2021 in order to hold ourselves accountable for the impact of our operations. Below is a snapshot of four of these goals. A complete list of our goals and an overview of our progress can be found in our annual Corporate Responsibility Report.


Our sustainability efforts revolve around four corporate responsibility pillars: safeguarding customer trust, protecting our planet, empowering our people, and strengthening our communities. These pillars ensure our approach to corporate responsibility is inclusive of our communities, our environment, our customers, and our people.

Safeguarding Customer Trust

Iron Mountain provides customers with innovative solutions that bring them closer to achieving their purpose, as well as their environmental, social, and corporate governance aspirations. We believe that innovation and integrity pave the path to long-term, sustainable success. We build trusted relationships with stakeholders based on this philosophy. Our approach is underpinned by the conviction that ethics and good governance matter to our future success.
