We are harnessing the power of intelligent infrastructure — where our collective technology, methods, and people can be a catalyst for that change. At Aligned, giving back is not only in our nature, but also in our DNA. For years, we’ve all made an effort to volunteer our time and donate funds and resources to the communities we live and work in – both individually and as an organization.
Through our new Aligned Cares platform, we are further building on these efforts and collaborating more closely with our internal teams and stakeholders, as well as with customers, partners and prospects to give, volunteer, and create special engagement elements that drive meaningful impact on the world.

We’ve been committed to solving the world’s toughest sustainability challenges associated with data center infrastructure, energy consumption and water usage since our inception. Our adaptive data center platform is focused on helping companies deliver greater business value with less costly energy and infrastructure resources. Engrained in every facet of our company from technology through design and construction, sustainability is, and will always be, at the core of what we do. Learn more (link to https://www.alignedenergy.com/sustainability/) about why we believe sustainability isn’t just great for our planet, it’s smart business.
From investment processes and solutions, to day-to-day business operations, sustainability is an important driver for our capital partners. We strive to build synergistic relationships and collaborate with our partners to produce successful sustainability outcomes for our customers.
Macquarie and the Green Investments Group are pioneers in the world’s transition to a low carbon economy. Since 2010, Macquarie has contributed to more than 22 GW of renewable generation capacity and has signed up to the global initiative RE100, underscoring its plans to power its global operations with 100% renewable electricity by 2025.
Aligned’s innovative data center design principles and construction processes also support sustainability. Our vendor managed inventory (VMI) program comprises a rolling pool of dedicated inventory, combined with factory-based construction of mechanical and electrical plant modular containers, which are then deployed and delivered on site. This allows hyperscalers, cloud and platform providers to truly future-proof their IT environments in the wake of unpredictable usage and growth models.
The ability to deploy our mechanical and electrical systems in small increments, and only when additional capacity is needed, contributes to sustainability because we are not deploying and stranding resources that are not being utilized for an extended time. This provides for responsible use of limited resources and reduces our customers’ carbon footprint.
