iM Data Centers joins the sustainability consortium
iM Data Centers, a manufacturer of modular data centers that are shaping the future of IT infrastructure, announced that it is joining the Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) Climate Accord (ICA), part of a historic cooperative of companies committed to reducing carbon in digital infrastructure materials, products and power.
As a company committed to redefining sustainability in the data center, eliminating unnecessary resource depletion, integrating renewable energy and more across its entire spectrum of design, engineering, process and of products, iM Data Centers’ participation in this agreement aligns perfectly with its own dedication to ESG as a central pillar of operations, according to the supplier.
In 2021, 7 million data centers worldwide represented 105 GW of electrical capacity, consuming 594 TWh of energy, reports iMasons. This is equivalent to 2.4% of global energy consumption. Currently, there is no universal labeling system or mechanism to measure embodied carbon during the lifetime of the materials used to build data center facilities or the products that fill them.
“It’s critical that we have an open standard for reporting carbon in data center materials, products and energy consumption methods,” said Michael Roark, Founder and CEO of iM Data Centers. . “Without it, there are no real, meaningful metrics to inform our contribution or direction, which makes progress difficult. iM has built its solutions to deliver quality, sustainable innovation while earnestly helping the planet and Our ESG initiatives include tracking detailed metrics and results for climate risk reduction and resilience, land and water health, waste reduction, economic and community improvement, and supply chain. Yet there is so much we need to do, and it needs to be done now. We are honored to be part of the ICA and to partner with such dedicated entities in this industry, and we look forward to our collective journey.
