Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
RampRate is a founding member of the Clinton Global Initiative and is a leader in sustainable data center sourcing.
In today’s information economy, reputation matters, and your company’s reputation is closely tied to the company it keeps.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important watchword in the C-Suite for many organizations.
When you sign a deal with a data center partner
You may inadvertently double your company’s carbon footprint – or cut it in half. You can associate yourself with an offshore partner raising the standards of living in a remote place, or one getting caught in governance scandals.
Bringing the Best Resources to Bear
RampRate has been working on reducing data center emissions through increasing visibility for responsible operators since 2007 to bring more breadth to the picture and cover governance, employee treatment and other forms of alignment with best practices, we have partnered with CSRHub, which aggregates more than 150 different data sources to rank more than 5,000 providers on their performance.
We have also integrated other data sources as appropriate
Including Greenpeace’s influential “How Clean is Your Cloud” report. If you’re a RampRate customer using our HyperSource.IT! platform to buy IT services, all you have to do is add the right weights to the new Industry and Community Fit of your scorecard – we will do the rest and incorporate social responsibility (CSR) metrics into the final decision.
If you’re interested in a more detailed breakdown
Or want to see how your own scores are shaped by CSR, RampRate and CSRHub we also offer standard and custom reports to drive more precise measurement and improvement programs. Simply contact your client engagement manager or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
“RampRate has been my most reliable global resource and is ready to perform for us at a moment’s notice. Their inside knowledge and ability to handle high-level complex negotiations helped us move fast! They made scaling easier.”
Paul Sams, COO, Blizzard Entertainment
“For over a dozen years, RampRate helped my companies understand the differences between suppliers and worked with us to create the methodology, define the metrics and utilize the proper QoS tools needed to choose the supplier best suited to our needs or restructuring through tailoring solutions. RampRate knows this business better than anyone. We literally saved months of time and optimized our infrastructure spend time and time again. They saved us millions, created agility and new budget out of thin air.” We use them to source or renegotiate cloud, CDN, data center, telecom, software, and strategic initiatives.
Phil Wiser, CTO Hearst, formerly of Sony and Liquid Audio
“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”
Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay
“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space, telecom and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone and certainly cut processes in half. Tony and team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to the table.”
