Through inclusive workforce development, Metro Edge works to create jobs in the communities where we operate. In our data center developments, training programs provide hands-on instruction in entry-level tech jobs that will remain in high demand as the industry grows.
While 80 percent of white adults report having a broadband connection at home, just 71 percent of Black adults and 65 percent of Hispanic adults have broadband, negatively impacting their ability to access quality telemedicine, participate in the largely online job search process, access critical services and information, or provide their children with access to remote learning/homework opportunities. By leveraging best-in-class technology, Metro Edge works to close the digital divide through the innovative deployment of public Wi-Fi.
Metro Edge is focused on developing buildings that minimize or eliminate environmental impact. We hire architects, engineers and contractors who share the same philosophy and design buildings with a goal to exceed current environmental regulatory standards. We do not shy away from sites that require environmental cleanup and will pursue local, state and federal programs that offer support to build environmentally sustainable projects.
