iM Data Centers, a manufacturer of modular data centers shaping the future of IT infrastructure, announced it is joining the Infrastructure Masons (iMasons) Climate Accord (ICA), becoming 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, processes, and products, iM Data Centers’ participation in this accord aligns perfectly with its own dedications to ESG as a core pillar of operations, according to the vendor.
In 2021, 7 million data centers worldwide represented 105GW of power capacity, consuming 594TWhs of energy, reports iMasons. This equates to 2.4% of global energy consumption. Currently, there is no universal labeling system or mechanism to measure embodied carbon over the life of the materials used to build data center facilities or the products that fill them.
“It is essential that we have an open standard to report carbon in data center materials, products, and power 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, making progress difficult. iM has built its solutions to deliver quality, sustainable innovation while sincerely helping the planet and its residents. Our ESG initiatives include tracking detailed measurements and results for Climate Risk Reduction and Resilience, Land and Water Health, Waste Reduction, Economic and Community Improvement, and Supply Chain Management. Still, there is so much we must do—and it must be done now. We are honored to be a part of the ICA and to join together with similarly dedicated entities in this industry, and we look forward to our collective journey.”
