ESG Strategy Connecting People

Connecting People

We aspire to create a lasting positive impact on stakeholders across our entire value chain, from customers and suppliers to local communities and our people.

Our People

As owners and ambassadors, our people remain at the heart of our ESG strategy. They play an integral role in our company’s success and enable us to achieve our common vision to become the most trusted and customer-centric data centre operator in the industry.  

A key tenet of our culture is that we want our people to thrive and achieve their full potential whilst being empowered to prioritise their own wellbeing and that of those around them.  

We have several programmes in place at Colt DCS: 

Colt DCS Flexible First

Flexible First

Flexible First provides employees with the freedom to choose where they work, striking a balance between office and remote working that works best for the customer, the business, and each individual. The program is informed by leading research and is a progressive, forward-thinking approach to post-pandemic working.

People Matter

People Matter

Our commitment to employee engagement and sustainability at Colt DCS is exemplified by our annual survey, "People Matters." This survey plays a crucial role in our strategy, offering valuable insights into the experiences and engagement levels of our employees.

Colt DCS Diversity Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

In 2022, Colt Group reviewed and refreshed its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) strategy. Our goal is to build an innovative, great and inclusive place to work. Our DEI strategy goes beyond our own company and extends to our supply chain. Our Vendor Risk Management (VRM) includes specific questions on inclusion and diversity at our suppliers.

Colt DCS Customer Loyalty Month

Customer Loyalty Month

In April, we organise our annual Customer Loyalty Month to celebrate our customers and to showcase the great work that we do with them. Each year, we organise several internal and external events, including customer insights sessions and an annual Customer Centric Employee Award.

Supporting our suppliers

We rely on a wide network of suppliers to support the delivery of our data centres to our customers and we pride ourselves on the engagement with our suppliers. We seek out partners who share our values and we build relationships where we can add value to each other’s businesses.

Our aim is to build long-term relationships with our suppliers and support their journey in sustainability. We integrate sustainability criteria in the selection (through our Vendor Risk Management system and our Request For Proposal Scoring), contract management, onboarding and ongoing management of our suppliers.

Our Supplier Code of Business Conduct and our Sustainable Procurement Policy set out the standards of corporate governance and sustainability that we expect from our suppliers.

We run a dedicated supplier programme covering a wide ESG agenda with a special focus on our top suppliers in terms of emissions. To achieve our Scope 3 target, we have committed that 93% of our suppliers by emissions (covering purchased goods and services and capital goods) will have Scope 1 and 2 science-based targets approved by Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) by 2025. At Colt DCS, our top 60 suppliers are responsible for 93% of our supplier emissions.


Thriving communities

Our goal is to manage our actions and operations responsibly to minimise negative social and environmental impacts, while maintaining a constructive dialogue with communities. 

We are committed to supporting the local communities where we operate. We encourage employee engagement with charities and local community initiatives and we value the dual impact of supporting a good cause and enabling employees to connect with communities, outside the office environment. In many countries, we have selected a local partner charity and an employee-led CSR team which identifies initiatives focused on fundraising and giving volunteering time/skills.
