At Iron Mountain, we’re always looking for ways to improve our own environmental performance within our operations. We’re proud of our UK Eco Box, made from 80% recycled materials and 20% from sustainably managed forests. It’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a group that works to ensure forests are properly and responsibly maintained to meet economic needs, conserve biodiversity and preserve species, while also taking into account land rights and the rights of indigenous communities and workers.
Many organisations account and report on the emissions they generate, and have set goals to reduce these emissions over time. Increasingly, organisations have also begun to engage with their supply chains to account for emissions from “cradle to grave,” meaning along the complete lifecycle. By collaborating with suppliers, organisations can assess what emissions are material to their business, and look for innovative ways to reduce them. Iron Mountain Data Centers' procurement of 100% renewable energy and the Green Power Pass product give organisations access to clean energy, enabling their data center load to support their Net Zero goals.
We believe that innovation and integrity pave the path to long term, sustainable success and are pleased to offer services that bring our customers closer to meeting their corporate values and stated goals. These solutions validate our belief that doing good and doing business do not have to be independent initiatives. In fact, by taking advantage of these products and services, our customers can advance their goals for sustainability while contributing to an industry-wide movement to reduce waste and enable more environmentally-conscious management of information in a meaningful and measurable way.
