Social responsibility pillars
We view our responsibilities through the lens of the following pillars. When these areas work together, they create a meaningful impact.
Address our carbon footprint to reduce impact.
Celebrate and invest in our people’s well-being.
Lead the way by giving back to our communities.
Provide multi-stream recycling, water bottle refill stations and composting services and install LED lighting in global corporate offices.
Limit single-use plastics.
Reduce quantity of printers to lower waste.
Maintain eco-cooling and a PUE of 1.14 in European data centres.
Offer charging stations to promote electric car usage.
Utilise solar energy.
Reducing carbon emissions and responsibly disposing of decommissioned equipment
Extending the life of data centre hardware helps companies to reduce their carbon footprint, unnecessary waste, overspending and more. Deciding to delay a hardware refresh avoids the need to manufacture equipment using raw materials, metals, packaging and transportation, in turn decreasing the production of CO2.
If a customer undergoes a hardware refresh based on capacity, compatibility and other requirements, our team ensures that all decommissioned equipment is disposed of following NIST 800-88 standards. The remaining equipment is either refurbished or recycled in a zero-landfill scrap facility.
Data centres powered by
100% renewable energy
Using clean energy and sustainable sources, our efficient data centres operate with renewable energy and have a power usage effectiveness rate (PUE) of 1.14.
Our Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO)-certified² data centres save around 2640 tonnes of CO2 each year.³
Building a more sustainable future
We’re focused on accelerating and developing transformative change to fulfill our environmental commitments. To show our dedication to protecting critical resources, we’ve pledged to meet net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or earlier through the United Nation’s Climate Neutral Now initiative.¹

Over £293,000 for Kids’ Food Basket since 2013
Every year, Service Express organises and hosts a charity golf outing, Driving Out Hunger, to benefit Kids’ Food Basket in its mission to provide nourishing meals to children to help them to reach their potential. Kids’ Food Basket has helped over 90,000 children to receive free or reduced meals with the help of volunteers, fundraisers and charitable donations.
Soon after his birth in 2019, Jayne’s grandson, Oscar, was diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy. This diagnosis rocketed Jayne’s daughter and son-in-law into a new and unexpected world of hospital stays, medication, appointments, adaptations to their home, medical training and so much more.
Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society (BDCPS) provided Oscar and his family with immense support. From providing counselling for parents to holding regular activities for children, craft groups and other ways to connect.
In 2021, BDCPS hosted a “Smile for a Mile” fundraiser, asking participants to walk during the Easter holidays and donate to the organisation. Team members came together to raise funds in support of Jayne and her family.
