Equinix Statement on Ukraine

Equinix Statement on Ukraine

Equinix stands with the people of Ukraine and fully condemns the actions by the Russian government. We are committed to supporting the sanctions intended for a peaceful resolution while working to do our part in maintaining the global digital infrastructure that supports free and open communication, aids in humanitarian relief and limits unintended consequences to countries and citizens impacted by this conflict.

Aligned with and subject to these objectives, our actions and commitments are:

  • While we do not have operations in Russia, we will not make direct or indirect investment in the country until this conflict ends and a government is in place that recognizes and honors the rights of other sovereign nations
  • We will not allow Russian customers to place orders for products or services, unless in our review of those orders, they align with the objectives stated above
  • We have suspended all activities and purchasing with and through Russian partners and suppliers

This conflict is having a devastating impact on the Ukrainian people, and we truly hope it can be resolved quickly and diplomatically. Until then:

  • We are providing services to existing Ukrainian customers free of charge until further notice
  • We will continue our employee donation 2:1 matching effort for relief organizations
  • We have provided a grant for immediate and direct relief to Polish Humanitarian Action which is actively working to assist and support the growing number of Ukrainian refugees
  • We continue to evaluate other grants and non-monetary support to aid in the humanitarian efforts and the support of Ukrainian refugees
