Established in 2017, coolDC is a Lincoln-based company that has a strategic commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Not only do we design, build, and operate data centres with a reduced environmental footprint, but we are also foregrounding the sustainability of our industry from a human resource perspective.
Recognising the lack of diversity within the data centre industry, we have committed to creating a team that is diverse and inclusive of all people, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, diff-ability or LGBTQ+ status. Along with recruiting our engineering team directly from undergraduate programmes at the University of Lincoln, we are also championing community engagement through active involvement with a number of activities aimed at raising awareness of diversity in STEM among children and young people in the local area. This includes participation as mentors and STEM Ambassadors, hosting site visits, and facilitating activities and discussions focusing on diversity, and environmental sustainability.
