Emerging regulatory and financial risks and opportunities have made ESG a priority focus for industry market leaders and the investment community.
Data centers offer a particularly attractive investment for ESG funds and asset managers because of:

- The state of data center sustainability
- How data center financial leaders are looking to preserve capital
