How we deliver our services is just as important as what we deliver.

We’re dedicated to supplying our IT solutions in ethical, sustainable ways that deliver real change for the wider world, not just our customers.

But we don’t stop there. We believe it’s also vital for us to give back. We run a range of initiatives, from promoting technology careers in schools, to fundraising for our partner charity The Trussell Trust, who we’ve collected Christmas presents and Easter Eggs for over the last year. We’ve also worked with Little John’s House and Rainbows previously, who provide vital on-the-ground support for refugees, disadvantaged children and young people with terminal illnesses.

THINKING NET ZERO

On the back of 2021’s COP26, sustainability has taken on even greater importance, with the UK Government setting organisations ambitious targets for achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

The summit’s focus firmly pivoted to the business world. Specifically, how organisations can help accelerate the fight against climate change. As a critical infrastructure operator, Node4 takes sustainability seriously and because our data centres have a high energy demand (98% of our electricity usage goes into delivering essential services), we’re dedicated to thinking smart about net-zero and doing right by the environment.

The net-zero target sits high on our risk agenda but also takes pride of place in our company culture, which is driven by trust, innovation, and passion – the key ingredients for making net-zero happen. By making changes that ensure longevity, adaptability, and lesser impact on the world we share, we ultimately benefit our customers.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

We’re continually working to align our CSR strategy and activities with the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at a local and national level. The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve lives and prospects for all by 2030.

One of the UK’s Best Workplaces

We’ve been recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™, published by Great Place to Work® for three consecutive years. It’s an accolade we’re proud of as it recognises the efforts and improvements we’ve made throughout each year to ensure an excellent employee experience.

We’re focused on helping young people to launch their careers in technology, thanks to our apprenticeship programme, work experience placements and partnerships with schools, alongside supporting our workforce with a range of learning and development opportunities, including technical accreditation.

Our diversity and equal opportunities policies underpin how we work, whether we’re recruiting a new apprentice or providing a more established professional with a fresh challenge.

A centre for Excellence in Wellbeing

We’re also recognised as a centre for Excellence in Wellbeing by Great Place to Work®. This means that employee wellbeing is a key element of our culture and we’re committed to creating the best possible workplace for our people.

“Working at Node4 has taught me so much and I love that every day is different! I get to develop my skills, there’s clear progression on offer and I get the opportunity to grow at a company I love working for. ”

OUR WORLD

We power hundreds of businesses through our data centres, from healthcare providers to transportation companies. 

Hosting IT systems in an energy efficient data centre is a great way to reduce the carbon footprint of a business compared to hosting on-premises. Plus, it helps companies enable other energy saving initiatives, such as remote/hybrid working and video conferencing.

We employ experts who concentrate on managing our energy usage and maintaining the delicate balance between environmental efficiency, resilience and performance.

As an ISO 50001 accredited organisation, we focus on continually improving our energy management.

We’re working to become greener and more efficient in two key areas

DATA CENTRES
  • Working with customers to ensure good practice in installing equipment
  • Carefully selecting our infrastructure for power, cooling, lighting and other areas.
  • Maintaining power and cooling infrastructure.
  • Ensuring cooling systems meet ASHRAE thermal guidelines.
  • Ensuring airflow is well designed.
  • Carrying out improvements in a timely manner.
OPERATIONS
  • Setting policies for the operation, maintenance and performance of infrastructure.
  • Considering energy performance as a factor in procurement, product development, process and facility design.
  • Encouraging energy efficiency from our workforce, contractors and suppliers.

OUR CONDUCT

Exceptional Service as a Standard (ESaaS) is our culture and drives everything we do, whether we’re interacting with colleagues, customers or partners.

It’s about providing a quality-assured service that incorporates all the relevant legislative considerations. It’s also about understanding what our customers need and providing tailored solutions based on our expertise.

ESaaS is a cornerstone of our business – new starters undergo a detailed training programme on joining us and existing employees undertake annual refresh sessions, all with the aim of providing staff with the tools, techniques and language they need to consistently deliver exceptional service, not just to our customers, but across the business, too.
