Equinix: Equinix joins CyrusOne in orchard initiative

Apr 04, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Equinix has joined Host In Ireland’s Orchards in the Community initiative, alongside CyrusOne, and is now one of 52 pledgers – and more than 90 schools and community groups. The initiative plans to help plant over 1,200 orchards across Ireland to bolster the country’s declining bee population. 

Through the initiative, Equinix is sending orchards to primary and secondary schools to help educate them on the importance of bees, and protecting their numbers. 

Maurice Mortell, Equinix’s Sustainability Lead in EMEA and managing director for Ireland, commented: “The team at Equinix Ireland is very proud to support Host in Ireland’s Orchards in the Community initiative – a signature initiative geared towards saving Ireland’s bee population.”

Adding: “At Equinix, we are taking action by planting orchards and pollinator-friendly plants, while also installing bug hotels at our existing sites in Dublin where possible and building these elements into the plans of new sites.”
