1 2021 was a year marked by both significant challenges and boundless opportunity . We entered the year filled with optimism, anticipating a return to normalcy as COVID-19 case counts moved steadily downward, only to face the stark reality of the Delta and Omicron variants, rising inflation and global supply chain disruptions . But despite these challenges, the Equinix team rose to the occasion . Looking into 2022, renewed COVID-19 optimism is clouded by the tragic events in Ukraine . Equinix is proud to be joining a vigorous global response and providing humanitarian support to the Ukrainian people . But in this increasingly complex and dynamic world, one thing is clear: the need for digital infrastructure continues to rise . Industries across the globe are being reshaped, and digital transformation has become a foundational source of competitive advantage . Digital leaders are demanding infrastructure that is more distributed, more ecosystem powered, more flexible, more sustainable and more interconnected than ever before, and Equinix is uniquely positioned to respond . Our global reach spans 66 metros across 27 countries, and customers continue to see Equinix as the best manifestation of the digital edge . Our scaled ecosystems enable proximity to the “who’s who” of the digital world, with 10,000 customers consisting of more than half the Fortune 500 and a commanding share of cloud on-ramps . Our interconnection platform now consists of more than 419,000 interconnections fueling the digital economy . These advantages are strongly aligned to market trends and allow Equinix to continue to extend its market leadership . At Equinix, we believe that this market leadership comes with deep responsibility—a responsibility to serve all our stakeholders and to leave our world better than we found it . We are living up to this responsibility with a bold future-first sustainability agenda that reflects our company values across Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives . This starts with our “in service to” mindset, showing up each day in service to each other which, in turn, enables us to be in service to our customers, to our shareholders and to the communities in which we operate . Every day we take action to further our commitment to building a culture where every person can confidently say “I’m Safe, I Belong, and I Matter,” creating an environment that attracts, includes and inspires the diverse and talented teams that bring our vision to life . We were thrilled to receive a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and be recognized as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality .” We were also proud to be ranked A MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP #1 in Real Estate in JUST Capital’s 2022 ranking of America’s most “just” companies . And, in a world that needs it more than ever, we have stepped up for our communities, donating over $2 million and volunteering more than 16,500 hours in support of 2,200+ charities around the world . In June 2021, we became the first company in the data center industry to commit to being climate neutral globally by 2030 . This commitment, backed by science-based targets for emissions reductions, an aggressive green financing plan and a comprehensive sustainability agenda, is a critical step in advancing our investments and innovations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and reflects the significant role we play in greening our customers’ digital supply chains and addressing the evolving needs of our stakeholders . We are well on our way to meeting our commitments, with over 95% renewable coverage for our portfolio in FY21, reaching over 90% for the fourth consecutive year . We also continue to improve the energy efficiency of our facilities, reducing our Power Usage Efficiency ratio over 5% year-over-year . And starting in 2022, we are holding our broader leadership team financially accountable for achieving both our environmental and our diversity objectives by implementing a modifier to short-term incentives for VP-level employees and above, including executive officers . In closing, as we reflect on 2021, we, like many, are struck by a variety of emotions . We are as optimistic as ever about the tremendous opportunity we see ahead as we seek to fulfill our purpose—to be the platform where the world comes together, enabling the innovations that enrich our work, our life and our planet .
