Environmental, Social and Governance: Vertiv’s Approach to Responsible Data Center Infrastructures
Vertiv is Committed to Being a Responsible Global and Corporate Citizen. In this video, Rob Johnson, Vertiv’s CEO, discusses our inaugural environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report which establishes an important baseline for our efforts related to our planet, our people, and our governance. Meeting the growing demand for data center infrastructure and other critical digital infrastructure while simultaneously mitigating environmental impacts from our operations and products and governing and managing our business responsibly are at the heart of our approach to environmental, social, and corporate governance. As a result, we’re innovating to come up with more efficient and effective ways to support critical digital infrastructure. Our evolving line of products and solutions reflects this mission. We are also taking steps to measure the carbon emissions that originate as part of our direct operations and study approaches to reduce our carbon footprint. Equally important to our processes and products are the people behind them. To bring ideas to life and push boundaries, we must draw from different and dynamic perspectives. That’s why we’re evaluating our approach to employee diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) and developing new talent at Vertiv. Through training opportunities, strategic focus, and increased awareness, we are examining how we attract, recruit, develop and retain a talented and diverse workforce. As our company grows, we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our people, partners, and customers. We are committed to adhering to standards and following a comprehensive corporate environmental, health, and safety (EHS) policy around the world. Furthermore, we emphasize a culture of safety that has resulted in a record that compares favorably to our peers To learn more about Vertiv’s ESG initiatives, visit Vertiv.com/ESG 0:00 Welcome to Vertiv! 0:20 Data Center Efficiency 0:37 Environmental Impacts of Data Centers 0:47 Addressing the Environmental Issue at Vertiv 1:30 Key Partnerships for Addressing the Issue of Climate Change 1:52 Our Approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Vertiv (NYSE: VRT) brings together hardware, software, analytics, and ongoing services to ensure its customer's vital applications run continuously, perform optimally and grow with their business needs.
