Data center growth doesn’t come at the expense of our planet. OnePurpose is STACK’s program to protect our future by improving Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards across our entire portfolio.
To work for the world. To build sustainable infrastructure. To take responsibility for our collective future. This is the mission and vision of our business. For all the ways we can do more, be better, and fulfill our responsibilities: OnePurpose.

To protect our water supply, STACK is focused on using water more efficiently. Our Basis of Design leverages air for cooling instead of water wherever possible to conserve and reduce.
