Corporate Responsibility


  1. Discover who we are
  2. Sustainability
  3. Strengthening Our Communities


We strive to catalyze positive change in the communities in which we operate.

At Iron Mountain, our impact extends beyond the walls of our facilities. We contribute positively to the communities in which we operate by leveraging the unique capabilities of our business. We go beyond philanthropy to conduct business in a way that ensures a prosperous future for communities.

Iron Mountain’s robust network of 25,000 employees and 1,450 facilities are actively engaged in our global community. We offer volunteerism, financial grant awards and in-kind service to nonprofits and non-governmental organizations to help make our neighborhoods a better place to work and live. Our philanthropic efforts come to life through two programs: the Living Legacy Initiative, which provides financial grants and in-kind services, and Moving Mountains, our employee volunteer program.

Living Legacy Initiative

The Living Legacy Initiative is Iron Mountain’s charitable commitment to preserve cultural and historical artifacts, and make them accessible to all. Living Legacy grants provide nonprofit agencies, museums and other non-governmental organizations with financial contributions, in-kind services or customized solutions that help advance their missions. Living Legacy’s mission, to unlock the value of the past to help shape the future, has taken shape with 3-D guided tours and educational resources around: The Stonewall Monument, San Sebastian Basilica, The United States Holocaust Museum, and many more.

As we move forward, Living Legacy will continue to evolve by emphasizing the educational value of these historical and cultural sites.
