Green energy, green initiatives and now green jobs are coming to DataBank. The leading provider of colocation, connectivity and managed services announced the appointment of Jenny Gerson as Senior Director of Sustainability this week. Gerson will work closely with the team to reach the company’s goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030 – as directed by DataBank’s parent company DigitalBridge. 

Gerson is responsible for creating and implementing DataBank’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy. Gerson will also oversee areas across ESG that include:

  • Diversity
  • Employee engagement
  • Health and safety initiatives
  • Business ethics
  • Cyber security

  • A robust governance structure 

Gerson is also conducting a materiality assessment to engage internal and external stakeholders and determine the high priority ESG topics that impact DataBank.

“I am thrilled to be a part of DataBank’s core team and leading the company’s ESG initiatives and data-driven strategy,” commented Gerson. “With a heightened level of transparency and the full support of the DataBank leadership team, DataBank is strongly positioned to meet our ESG objectives, create an enriching and valuable workplace, and help transition the world to a more sustainable future.” 

DataBank furthered its commitment to addressing climate change by becoming a founding member of the historic Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) Climate Accord earlier this year. DataBank and 70 other organizations pledged to accelerate the digital infrastructure industry’s journey to carbon neutrality.
