Celebrating Sustainable Partnerships: Element Four’s 2023 Switch Sustainability Certificate

Switch Center

Element Four is thrilled to announce that we have once again been awarded the Switch Sustainability Certificate for our commitment to using 100% Renewable Energy within Switch’s state-of-the-art data center ecosystem.
In 2020 and 2022, Switch retired Renewable Energy Credits on our behalf, ensuring that our energy consumption at Switch’s data center facilities remained 100% Green. Building on this commitment, we are proud to share that Switch has retired 86 Renewable Energy Credits in 2023, further solidifying our dedication to sustainability and green energy usage within Switch’s data centers.
These Renewable Energy Credits, which comply with Greenpeace’s principles of locality, additionality, and sustainability, reflect our joint commitment to environmental responsibility. They were generated by Nevada solar farms, WECC hydroelectric plants, and Miso Waste Heat Recovery facilities, aligning with our mission to support renewable energy sources.
Switch’s dedication to environmental stewardship is evident in their impressive track record:

  • Net ZERO Scope 2 emissions since 2016
  • Net ZERO Scope 1 emissions since 2021
  • Earned the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Certification for superior energy efficiency
  • Named One of the Top 5 Tech Companies for Solar Use by the Solar Energy Industries Association

Element Four President Chris Vinton expressed his gratitude, stating, “We have been partners with Switch since 2017. Switch has the most advanced data centers on the planet which keeps our systems and data highly available, stable, and secure. We are honored with the Sustainability Certificate they have presented to us and are proud to be partnered with such a progressive and responsible organization.”

Our partnership with Switch, along with their commitment to the highest standards of environmental performance, enables us to provide top-notch services in Backup, Disaster Recovery, and IT Managed Services while contributing to a greener planet. All Element Four systems are managed and maintained in the Switch ecosystem, which consists of Tier 5 data centers worldwide.

We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Switch and working towards a sustainable future together.
