iMasons Advisory Council members met on February 22, 2022 to decide on one thing they could do together as an industry to battle climate change. The meeting was dubbed “Chez Belady.”
Six hours later, the iMasons Climate Accord (ICA) was born.
This agreement represents a historic and unprecedented collaboration between leading infrastructure companies committing to the common goal of reducing carbon in digital infrastructure materials, products, and power as a first step toward Net Zero. Through this collaborative agreement, the industry has a chance to compound the sustainability impact of each company and make the sum greater than the parts.
With all of the energy its facilities and products expend, the digital infrastructure industry needs to go beyond renewable energy opportunities to take a leading role in tackling climate change and achieving planetary net zero. As a starting point, they need to adopt an industry-wide, open standard that every data center can use to report carbon use in materials and products, carbon intensity in power consumption, and individual progress in meeting these goals.
The iMasons Climate Accord (ICA) reflects that vital initial step in bringing the digital infrastructure industry together to work toward a better, more sustainable future.
This InterGlobix Magazine article reports on the new iMasons Climate Accord initiative to reduce the digital infrastructure industry’s carbon footprint. The Climate Accord is a pledge that iMasons members can sign, committing to achieving carbon-neutral operations by 2030 and carbon-free operations by 2040.
The article highlights that the digital infrastructure industry currently accounts for around 4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, expected to rise significantly in the coming years as the industry continues to grow. The Climate Accord is an important step towards mitigating the industry’s environmental impact and addressing the urgent challenge of climate change.
