Equinix Sustainability Scholarship

Equinix, the world’s digital infrastructure company, has established the Equinix Sustainability Scholarship at SMU to address the “green talent gap” in Singapore. Through this scholarship, the company, which boasts a bold sustainability agenda, hopes to cultivate interest and awareness in Sustainability and inspire undergraduates to expand their learning beyond traditional academic disciplines.

“Nurturing the next generation of leaders with a core expertise in sustainability will be key to accelerating the transition towards greener business models, and is necessary to boost climate change efforts in ways that are scientifically sound, economically feasible and socially acceptable,” said Yee May Leong, Managing Director, Equinix South Asia.

“Sustainability is a career path that provides opportunities for individuals to be a part of innovations that will solve some of the most pertinent issues we face today; it is a career in which I can truly make a positive global impact. My interest in technology and sustainability, and knowledge of Equinix’s strong environmental credentials as a leading data infrastructure company, have inspired me to apply for the scholarship. I am optimistic that the Equinix Sustainability Scholarship will further spur passionate students like me to advocate for a sustainable future from our various professional domains,” said Shania Sukamto, a fourth-year SMU business undergraduate and inaugural recipient of the Equinix Sustainability Scholarship.
