The iMasons Climate Accord (ICA) was formed by leaders in the iMasons Advisory Council. SUPERNAP (Thailand), committed to boost positive and ever-lasting change for a greener digital infrastructure, reinforce its commitment by joining the coalition.
The ICA is a historic alliance by the leaders of the industry designed to govern a methodology to measure and reduce carbon in the digital infrastructure through products, power, and materials.
“SUPERNAP (Thailand) is proud to be joining another iMasons amazing initiative. As data center providers, it is crucial that together we develop the green digital infrastructure for our clients, but most importantly for our planet.” Said Sunita Bottse, Chief Executive Officer of SUPERNAP (Thailand).
The ICA includes hyperscale companies AWS, Google, Meta, and Microsoft, which represent some of the largest digital infrastructure portfolios in the world, as well as SUPERNAP (Thailand) and over 40 colocation data center providers, product, service and investment firms that fund, build and operate the foundation and drive the supply chain.
“We established iMasons to unite the builders of the digital age,” said Dean Nelson, Chairman and Founder of Infrastructure Masons. “The ICA represents an unprecedented collaboration between leading digital infrastructure companies to accelerate our journey to carbon neutrality. Today, we are combining forces to compound the efforts of these firms to make meaningful and sustained progress toward that goal.”
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 to have industry adoption of an open standard to report carbon in data center materials and products, carbon intensity in power consumption, and a maturity model to report participant progress.
The next step in the iMasons Climate Accord is to identify and establish an independent governing body to adopt or develop a standard methodology for measuring carbon in digital infrastructure and ensuring transparency. The work from this body will influence market-based buying decisions to drive the industry to carbon neutrality as the first step to achieving planetary net zero.
Collaboration is key to compounding the results from the commitments of each of the ICA companies and ensuring the sum is greater than the parts.
