GRI 417: MARKETING AND LABELING, continued Disclosure No. Disclosure Title 2021 Response SOC-12 (Equinix Internal Metric) Customer experience Equinix is built on a culture of putting the customer at the center of everything we do . Aligning around the customer means delivering value for their business, building long-term strategic partnerships and driving loyalty by listening to and acting on their feedback . We want customers to recommend Equinix above all others because we deliver experiences they value with the digital infrastructure they trust . We aim to reach 100% of our customers through our ongoing Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey, listening and learning across all industries and personas . We are pleased that customer sentiment has reflected our NPS above the tech industry average for all four years of measurement with this metric . In 2021, we saw our score continue to increase year on year, represented by 5,800 voices . Our efforts to make the customer experience a strategic differentiator revolve around: § Listening – We listen through voice-of-the-customer programs that aggregate feedback from a variety of sources, including outbound surveys, events and focus groups, passive forms/surveys, online feedback buttons and employee collected forms . § Analyzing the Data – We measure feedback from customers’ experiences during value moments and by collecting data on how they feel about our overall relationship . Learnings from the analysis inform our strategy and shape our customer improvement initiatives and focus areas . § Taking Action – As we prioritize, implement and track customer improvements across the company, our goal is to ensure our actions are delivering value and positively impacting our customers’ experience . § Sharing Progress – Finally, we recognize that customer improvements aren’t meaningful if no one knows about them . We follow up with customers so they know their voice is being heard and to demonstrate how their feedback makes a difference in how they can expect to do business with us .
