The global digital infrastructure industry is increasingly driven by sustainability, with a host of measures and initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impacts. Bulk is targeting a global leadership position within sustainable digital infrastructure and follows an entrepreneurial approach to shape the broader industry agenda and unlock the benefits of renewable energy to drive the planet’s digital future.
